  2. Sermons or lectures that help you connect religion to your own life
  3. Spiritual programs geared toward children and teenagers
  4. Lots of community outreach and volunteer opportunities
  5. Dynamic religious leaders who are interesting and inspiring

  2. You don't like organized religion
  3. You aren't very religious
  4. You haven't found a church or other place of worship that you like
