Faith without soul ...

... Dry Bones. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

If religion is for this life only, then it must compete on an even plane with other worldly ideologies.

And if so, why bother. This is a very thoughtful piece, but I think it needs to be emphasized that those who take faith seriously understand that its essence - that which makes it what it is - is prayer, the lifting up of the mind and heart to God. That is why a proper liturgy reverently observed is important, and why a frivolous liturgy casually executed is so counterproductive.
