Ack! I mean to say Jesus, as a man, practiced the Jewish religion. And when I said that he 'didn't have to', I meant that if it wasn't what we are supposed to do, he wouldn't have bothered. He always spoke out against false humility, love, etc...and he turned the money changers out of the temple with a whip because he considered it such a holy and necessary place.

Whew! Glad to clear that up! :)

Re: As an ex member, I find freedom in worshipping God in nature and
Of course God is everywhere, in everything, but as a Jew, he practiced the Jewish religion. He didn't have to but he knew that having a special place to worship God is a good and necessary practice. In the old testament there was always the temple or tent where worship took place.

The ceremonies are beautiful and meaningful, and are also a way to show our profound awe and respect for God.

We are expected to worship God in all places, so it is natural to find spirituality in nature, in people and in private contemplation. But we are also told to keep holy the sabbath day, which, even in and before Christ's time meant specifically to come together as a community to worship God.

Anyway, come on! You've got more than two cents' worth here!

without all these man-made ceremonies...I appreciate going to church in a building, but I find God's spirit everywhere, especially in nature...I think Christians would do well to step outdoors where God's creation is, instead of indoors where man's  is.  My two cents worth.

Re:
Lord, I'm pathetic! I go every Sunday, I had a 'tour of the vestment closet' (it was much more innocent than it sounds...) and I had to look them up. You've got a good memory.

Cheers,

Juliette
