Insightful and on point. Relevance, like meeting so-called needs (not basic care, but the presumed needs of the affluent and aimless) so blurs the distinction that church becomes little more than a vaguely religious version of a enthusiasts self-help club. The church, at least in embryonic form, is an independent (transcultural?) culture with values, rituals, symbols, mandates, and prohibitions that are neither consistently relevant nor countercultural. Your thoughts capture this tension very well.
