Practices that Align with Beliefs

On a scale of 1 to 10, ten being high, how true do you think this statement is?

"Churches, for example, ask members to affirm certain religious
beliefs and the mission those beliefs imply. But rarely are churches
intentional about naming—let alone asking members to commit
themselves to—the relational norms and practices that would sup-
port their beliefs and mission. As a result, the relationships within
many churches are shaped more by the norms of secular culture than
by those of the religious tradition." —Parker Palmer

What do you think needs to be done to make this better?
