6. Religion I grew up with was bitter and mournful.

I'm not religious. I identify as atheist because I think the chance of a deity worthy of the name turning up is beyond remote.

However, on Sunday morning, I'd always go home with kickass Gospel blasting on my car radio. It always made me feel better, no matter how exhausted and demoralized I was.

So on that level, I can relate to this post.Yes, there is a different energy. Megachurches have tried to copy it but have neglected the core message and have just gone for the drums. They're still bitter, just louder.

If you think that little church and its people have something to teach you, go back. It seems like you'll be welcome.
