Church Was Not Sustaining My Spiritual Growth

By Tired of the Rhetoric

I no longer attend church.  Why?  I found the lessons and manuals to be surface and repetitive.  I found that there was a lack of real, genuine dialogue because the majority of the members in my ward simply wanted to show up, repeat the same rhetoric, and go home.  That was not sustaining for my spiritual growth and ultimately was harmful to my faith.  In order to protect and further develop my faith, I stopped attending.  You can call it what you want–I call it wisdom.

How can we encourage greater depth and genuine dialogue in our RS/Quorum council meetings?  In what ways can we encourage the development of faith in the new ministering era?
