    Don't you understand? There is no viable answer that ANYONE can give you. We don't know you. We don't know a thing about you. We don't even know your age.

    You have to take the responsibility to look inside yourself and begin to be honest with yourself about why, and/or why not you have, or don't have, certain feelings. No one knows but you.

    Where I've attended since @ 1999, about 35% of the service is liturgical, the teaching is about 55%, and everything else is about 10% of the service. Having come there from a completely non-liturgical place, to me it was initially interesting, later mere ritual, then I gained a love for the liturgy.

    My hands had become shaky, making writing an issue. I decided to write out a personal copy of the prayer book we use. The result was a deeper understanding of the prayers, and I looked up several parts of it, to understand those portions that were difficult.

    Now, I love the liturgy. It was digging into the prayers, endeavoring to understand them, that changed their value for me, so that I could pray them, rather than merely repeat them.
    Willie-T and oldethennew like this.
    He is found by those who do not seek Him. He says, "Here I Am! Here I Am!" to those who never called His Name.
    Worthy are You, O L-rd our G-d, to receive glory, honor, and power; for You
    created all things. Because of You, they are and were created.

    I wish there was a church like this by me, but I know there isn't.
    It's perfect.

    You're a tough nut to crack.
    I Also ask questions to make people think.

    I asked you what it means if someone feels nothing.
    The right answer was given by me.

    It means nothing.

    We live by what we know. (God loves us and we love Him)
    Not by what we feel.

    We might feel abandoned by God because of some hardship.
    We might feel mad at Him because of sickness or a death.
    We might feel disappointed because the answer to prayer was . . . No.

    It's OK. We eventually get over it and move on.
    As long as we go by what we know and Not what we feel.

    This is applicable to every Christian.
    Male, female
    Young, old
    New, seasoned.
