Why do people stay in the church?

Considering the discussion on this blog yesterday, I thought this essay was very thoughtful and relavent.

An excerpt:

All the ways in which the Church has let people down through the millennia are easily collected, tallied, categorised, and blamed. Yet the ways in which God has called people back, kept people home, and drawn people to him are as unique as each individual involved. To reiterate, it is easy to explain why people leave the Church, but not why people stay in, return to, or even convert to the Church. It is also easy to identify and analyse people's sins and errors in thinking, but never what makes them holy and saintly. God lifts us up from the dust heap in the most mysterious ways.
