Why Go to Church?

I desperately want to feel this way about church, but I don’t. Not even a little bit. In fact, like much of my generation, I feel the complete opposite. Turns out I identify more with Maria from The Sound of Music staring out the abbey window, longing to be free. It seems all-too-often our churches are actually causing more damage than good, and the statistics are showing a staggering number of millennials have taken note. According to this study (and many others like it) church attendan…
