We should gather with other believers because Jesus himself suggested it, too; as exasperated as I get sometimes with individuals at the church I attend, it still is good for me to share the worship experience with others. And when lifes trials come, to me or to them, we can encourage & support each other in a special way.
Speaking of going to church, during a visit to Arizona I attended a church so different from my own that it was like night and day - and I loved it!! What a joy to hear another style of preaching, and to see others worshiping the same God in such a joyous fashion.
"All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king..."SGGardner Art
