I've just read Zig Ziglar's "See You At The Top" and I found this sentence in the book that I don't know whether it is an idiom or just a plain saying, nor am I sure of its meaning. The sentence reads:
"I quit eating in church."
I've looked it up in some idiom dictionaries but find no answer.
It will be highly appreciate if you would be kind enough to tell me what the sentence really means - literally or figurally.
I would suggest that it is in some kind of anecdote about Zigler's conversion, and that it is literal - he had been in the habit of eating in church and stopped after his enlightenment.
