This makes me think...

I seldom had people leave the church because they heard something offensive in a church school class [or religious education setting]. But people frequently became angry and left because something happened to them in a church meeting.  This alone suggests how powerfully church meetings and ministry experiences can touch people's lives and transform their faith.

We sometimes forget that experiences in ministry shape how people make sense of Christian faith.
