I really like Meg\'s list. I think that if I were to replace \"Doing religion with someone\" with \"Sharing a spiritual moment with someone\", then that very same list might apply to me.

Especially the sharing a meal bit. That rings so true in my ears it makes me want to get everyone together for dinner ASAP. There\'s just something powerful and magical about preparing food for people that are important to you.

Doing religion with someone can show you who you are, or hide you from yourself. It can show you who *they* are, or hide you from them, and the reverse. It can do more than one of these things at once.

Doing religion with someone is something you do even though you never did believe in God (I don\'t know, maybe it\'s not religion, but no one yet has said \"Doing religion with someone can only mean talking out our Lord Jesus Christ\" and everything I\'ve read above applies, so I think we\'re talking about the same activity).

Doing religion with someone is the only way I know to find out the things that really matter to you and about you.

Doing religion with someone is not necessarily something you stop doing when you stop believing in God.

Doing religion with someone is something you may have been doing long before you realized it was religion.

Doing religion with someone is not separable from anything else you do with them, any more than loving them is, or being their friend.

Doing religion with someone is what I am doing with all of you, right now.

Doing religion with someone can lead to nausea, dry-mouth, dizziness, or constipation. Ask your doctor if religion is right for you.

No, I\'m sorry, I read this and couldn\'t think of anything real. I swear I\'ll come back later and make amends.
