Religion *Is* a Relationship

Leah Libresco says that time spent on religious activities isn’t time taken away from your primary relationships; rather, religion is a relationship:

I certainly spend some Sunday mornings grumping about in bed, not wanting to get up and schlep for a forty minute walk to Church. Or having to get up at 6am to get to the very early Mass, so I can make it to work when I’m needed. And I’ll admit that, in the moment, it feels a bit like a privation.

But I’m not having my time or energy stolen from my real relationships. I’m choosing to spend it on one.

And, of course, she’s absolutely right. Go see.
