Studies indicate that individuals who are involved spiritually and in religious communities have better long term health; not only because of individual beliefs but because of the social aspects offered by religious communities.  How many of us were raised in a specific community i.e. Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Baptist or other by our parents?  How many of us still participate in these communities on a weekly basis.  The research also indicates that as we age, we return to our previous spiritual communities for support.
