C.S. Lewis said that when he first became a Christian, he had trouble with church gatherings. “I thought that I could do it on my own by retiring to my rooms and reading theology, and I wouldn’t go to churches anymore.” He found the sermons often dull, and he disliked organ music, which he described as “one long roar.” He had contempt for church hymns, which he “considered to be fifth rate poems set to sixth rate music.” As his faith matured, however, he grew to value gathering with other Christians to worship. As his ego diminished, he realized that these hymns were being sung with enthusiasm by elderly saints in neighboring pews, and then he realized that he was unworthy to clean their boots. He said, “Going to church gets you out of your solitary conceit.” A secret: this is the main problem; conceit, ego, and pride
