what really matters?
Admittedly, what matters a great deal to me may not matter at all to you. There are things and issues I am passionate about that others yawn over. We all grow up with a set of values, and we tend to develop strong feelings through the years that are sometimes shared by others and sometimes not.

I’ve often heard the statement, “I don’t have to go to church to be a Christian,” or “I don’t need to go to church to have a relationship with God.”
Indeed, even pop culture idol Justin Bieber made small waves last year when he interviewed with V Magazine saying, “A lot of people who are religious, I think they get lost. They go to church just to go to church. I’m not trying to disrespect them … but for me, I focus more on praying and talking to Him. I don’t have to go to church.” An influential blog suggested that less than 20 percent of Millennials (those born in the early 80s) attend church more than once per month. In Christian circles, author Donald Miller (Blue Like Jazz) recently wrote that he no longer needs to have church via going to church.
