When one pushes buttons... expect a reaction.

It's not surprising, true, but this only gives one to wonder what the point of church is. I don't think you really made that clear in your OP by declaring that you thought it was a mistake to reject what you learned growing up. I'm not suggesting that the point of church is for you to transcend those buttons you think other people are pushing. If going back to church is just a regression to childish relation to habit, then so be it. It's the going back that isn't forthrightly addressed, although I'm perfectly willing to regard church attendance as a tap that one turns off and on again. To be clear, it's other people who are telling you it's a mistake to reject what you learned growing up. In that case it wasn't really worth the thread to make the big announcement. I'm with those who say you're welcome to whatever floats your boat. Paddle it quietly, please, so you don't splash the other bathers.
