I was awake at 5:00 this morning, laying in bed, musing, when a brief wave of understanding swept over me, like the wave of an ocean, and then rested back to sea.

The church is doing okay, and once in a while we all need to re-set ourselves to it. How do we re-set? Regular temple attendance. It settles us down enough to re-set our lives to be in line with God.
