I studied Buddhism for a minute...learned about the 3 refuges-Dharma, Sangha, and Buddha. Christians also have 3 refuges-Scripture, Christian community, and Christ.
I yearn to go to church when I need to hear from You, when I need you desperately. Why, I am not sure since I know no man made structure contains You while you let my heart hold You. Is church simply the place where I can be quiet enough to hear You, where I expect to be able to hear from You, where I let my guard down long enough, feel safe enough?
