"I now describe myself as a lapsed
atheist. I still don’t believe in God, and I never take Communion. But I like going
to church. My favourite service is
choral evensong", Follett writes. "Why do I go? The architecture, the
music, the words of the King James
Bible, and the sense of sharing something
with my neighbours all work together.
What they create, for me, is a
feeling of spiritual peace! Going to
church soothes my soul."
