We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I attended the oddest service in what was I think a Baptist church in Houston a few years ago. It was Mother's Day. The service was all about mothers, without a single mention of God or a word from the Bible. There were cheerful songs with secular lyrics.
I like the Episcopalian liturgy. Counting the Psalm, there are at least four sections read from the Bible in every service. The sermon usually concerns at least one of these. If our pastor discussed Mother's Day, he would certainly tie it back to scripture. He's interested in the world, but only as a means to fulfill our duties to God.
Your first statement sounds like what we are finding in many Methodist services. Some never mention Jesus, the Bible or other religious beliefs. Last year the church we attend sometimes and used to attend every Sunday, announced that Methodist need to pray every day. If you have to be told to pray every day someone has failed in your church.
