The Treachery of Images (La trahison des images), René Magritte,1928–29 Why should I be a part of your church? At my cell’s meeting the other night, that is what we were pondering.

One person said the meetings are an opportunity to worship together, and still another said they needed the teaching as part of their regular discipline. But what want to worship or feel like you don't need the teaching? Is there another reason?
