If church folk would be honest with themselves, a great deal of their spiritual episodes are based on memories of previous ones. In other words, they believe their experience was good if it was lively and corporately sensual and that it was bad if there was an individual or corporate sense of a dead church. These episodes are called the experiencing and remembering self. Drawing from Paul's personal narratives in scripture and the writings of Daniel Kahneman, Pastor Neal addresses how manipulative we can be when it comes to our church experiences that can lead to stunted spiritual growth and connection with The Divine.
