Why go to church in the first place?

In this video, the author asks people on the street why they either do or do not go to church. Why should they go when they may not even know they need it? And how can they come to reaslize their need if they do not hear it from others, or see the effect of it in the lives of those around them?



And in this video, Fr. Steve Rice, Episcopal priest, asks why we should get out of bed on Sunday morning.


And again in this video the question is asked why people do not go to church.




This video suggests that we are the church in our neighbourhoods.
