Sitting in the pew no more makes you a saint than sitting in the garage makes
you an automobile.
Matt Brown is my favorite writer and editor.
Want to feel closer to God? Go watch a sunset.
Want people to become closer to God? Encourage them to ask Him about things and
to listen. There's nothing quite like an answer to personal prayer to
bring a person closer to the divine over a lifetime.
So that is what is happening. It all makes sense now. Out of the blue, I've
had people from several faiths encouraging me to go to Church. My LDS friends
are always after me, but now I seem to have a number of people competing to save
my soul. I guess I can now understand how Joseph Smith felt. :-)
