What we do when we gather together for worship is one of the eight aspects of a healthy and balanced spiritual life. Ours is a tradition that affirms the private life of the religious person, for sure. Thoreau in his cabin dreaming up a vision of life reduced to its basics and crafting his notion of civil disobedience too. However, true religion, you can argue, cannot be done entirely alone. What happens to a person worshipping in community? What happens to you?
