Why Go To Church
« on: Thu Feb 17, 2011 - 16:17:56 »
WHY GO TO CHURCH

A church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sence to go to church every Sunday. "I've gone for 30 years now," he wrote, "and in the time I have heard some thing like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all."

This started a real conteroversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column, much to the delight of the editor. It went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:

"I've been married for 30 years now. In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals. But I do know this: They all nourished me and gave me the strenghth I needed to do my work. If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishent, I would be spiritually dead today !"

If most meals come in the form of a homily, then anemia is to be expected.

I like that!  The church serves more than just sermons & messages!  There's Christian fellowship & Bible study as well!
