I would recommend you try to look at the church from the perspective of non-believers - those both inside and outside your sanctuaries. We have a different perspective on the community you long for. The "phony Christians" and "hypocrites" in your pews whom everyone loves to decry and demonize have a story and a perspective too,--only ours is rarely told. But we are every bit as much the story of the church as believers are. Maybe you could learn something from it: https://medium.com/interfaith-now/in-defense-of-phony-christians-2e6733e23240
