25. Grew up Methodist (before the United part in 1968)
Pretty much quit attending in college -- not from religious sensibilities -- just wanted to sleep in on Sundays. I still had a good relationship with God; I just didn't worship in public on a weekly basis.

In my 40s, I started attending regularly again, generally a couple of times a month as my work schedule allows. I found that I missed the sense of community, the open-heartedness of the Methodist church in general and my church in particular, and, most of all, I missed the music. Where else can you get together weekly, in a room with fine acoustics, and sing to your heart's content?
