As I read, I’m cheering her on. I was brought up Protestant and am most comfortable with a personal, private relationship with God. But my Protestant church going was powerful, and, it still is. The communal worship at my current church brings us together to do God’s work in the world--no way to avoid outreach at my church. Sunday service also nourishes my personal relationship with God.
Experiencing God both communally and personally is the obvious way to go. Obvious, because, through teachings and example, that what Jesus taught us.
