When does church become organized religion? I’ve been in church where the religous experience was great but the spiritual experience was in the toilet. One church i was in passed the hat on the end of a long stick. That was cool although i couldn’t figure out if they didn’t trust me or i was contagious.
It might be fun if you cared to share some of your “religious” experiences. Here’s another memory. I was traveling and dropped in on a small church. They had already started their experience. I sat down in a chair backed up against the rear wall. A rather religious elderly type, told me I couldn’t sit there. I said, “Thank you and left”.
I have more but will give you a chance. What’s your experience?
