 Lonelyness in Church and in our society

Lonelyness is a big problem in our society and as Jesus is the only person who can comfort the lonely.
With Television and Radio, People do not know how to talk. I used to listen to what people talk about and mostly it is either abount failed relationships.
Why dont christians talk about Jesus outside church?
This is not true with all christians but why is it that I sometimes feel lonely in church which is suppose to be one of the most loving places.

Without god we do not know nothing

O.K. who's the wise guy that's been praying for me ? HA :-D .

Dom we're as lonely as we want to be and we only tell as much about ourselves as we want to and only listen to others when they tell us about themselves if we feel like listening.

The art of listening is all but gone, but so is the art of listening to God; if you'll excuse my use of the word 'art' for a lack of a better word right now.

When I was a teenager, and we moved to a new town, with me being shy and all, I asked my Dad, how can I make friends, and he said, "Just BE a friend and let it just work out from there ... and don't worry about 'making' friends, just be one."

That stuck with me ... also at the same time I asked him how I could learn how to not be so bloody sensitive and he said, "Just turn that sensitivity around onto others." Oh mannnn.

Father knew best. :-D
