There is something wonderfully primitive about southern churches. They seem closer in spirit to the truth of their faith. Without all the pomp and circumstance of other churches these churches seem to embody the essential aspects of religion. They are often colorful reflecting the goodness and joy of spiritual teachings. The happiness empowered by being close to God. Northern large churches seem to have lost all sense of intimacy, joy, care, benevolence and generosity of spirit. Perhaps they are more political and because of that some how removed from the fundamental qualities of goodness.
