Most folks who attend church have "reached the age of reason".

You don't want to go? No problem. But please don't insinuate that those who are religious (of any faith) are somehow lacking in logic and reason.

Twin Lights,

It is what it is. Denial is irrational.

Pastor Young,
Free coffee won't motivate many in Utah to pop in, but donuts!!! Now you're talking!!

Maybe even a few members of the Hutter Church will attend??

Last time I drove through Utah, I saw LDS meeting houses on nearly every block. I didn't know they were all empty!

Yep, because they're only open on Sunday and Tuesdays usually; for church and for youth activities.

I am glad that so many in Utah take the opportunity to go out of their way and go to church. Where they can visit with and get to know their neighbors. Share uplifting and motivational messages with each other. Renew sacred covenants and re-committing to help, love, and serve others. To dedicate one day a week specifically to searching out truth and light.

I know that for me, I'm not likely to create service opportunities with my neighbors on my own, or engage in community activities that build, and strengthen individuals and their families without the constant encouragement and reminders that come from church.

Searching for light in the darkness is a very difficult struggle when you are on your own.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.~ MLK Jr.

Everyone you know who is LDS is irrational? That seems unlikely in the extreme.

LDS folks truly set a wonderful example regarding Sunday worship, even on vacation. I have attended meetings in a few summer vacation areas which busted at the seams on Sunday. Even lake resorts have little water recreation on Sunday after meetings where LDS dominate.
