A new study by Chaeyoon Lim, an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, indicates that one of the keys to happiness is church attendance, more particularly, having a circle of friends at that church. “Attending religious services regularly and having close friends in the congregation are key to having a happier, more satisfying life.”

In addition to happiness, “33% of people who attend religious services every week and have three to five close friends in their congregation report being ‘extremely satisfied’ with their lives.”
God created us to live in relationship with others.
