I am continually wounded by discussions that use family metaphors regarding church fellowship.

You just need a new family, Jim. And don't forget, you still have family that have not abandoned you. Seems like I had dinner with them just a few months back. Your point about having the right relationship with God is true, however. Ultimately, we all need a certain degree of self-sufficiency and our own relationship with the Holy Ghost.
