Before I start, I'm semi-spirtual/religious myself, but my "prayers" are private (if you can call them that... I'd call them comments and conversations to a god I don't even know is listening or cares to listen). I understand prayer. What I don't understand is the need for it be public for some people. Is this type related? Or at least, extroverted?
As for worship, I don't participate. I remember when I first started believing in Christianity, I had a neighbor who kept insisting I go to her church. I didn't like her church. I didn't like any churches, tbh. Some either bored me, creeped me out, or I conflicted with people there. She kept on saying I couldn't "grow" in faith without "fellowship". Like, this was an integral part of the whole deal. On my end, I didn't like the idea. It's like I signed up for something and didn't read the "small text" at the bottom of the contract. "Fellowship"? This sucks. Is this type related? Or Am I Evil?
