Amy J, I love your list of spiritual implications. Sometimes when people ask me why I as a Mormon would participate at other churches, I respond, "to supplement my spirituality." Diversifying my own personal menu helps me to not burn out of with just "hamburgers" all the time. I keep hamburgers in the rotation. Sometimes I can even appreciate the comfort and familiarity of the hamburger ... as long as it isn't being shoved down my throat!
