A Continuing Series On How Church Is Active In People's Lives

From cynicism, to 'pew-warming,' to loving back

I'm one of those who left church to feed their spirituality in private. But something drew me back.

Although at the time I wouldn't have recognized it, I think I felt innately that something was missing in my life. The Sunday morning came when, instead of being glad I didn't have to smell mothballs (a woman who usually sat near me in church always smelled of mothballs), or possibly hear a mispronounced word in the sermon (I was most critical at that point), I felt drawn to go to Christian Science services by what I'd call an inner yearning. To my surprise, I got out of bed, asked my husband to accompany me, bundled up the baby, and we went to church.
