Why Go To Church


A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of the 
newspaper and complained that it made no sense to 
go to church every Sunday. 

"I've gone for thirty years now," he wrote, "and 
in that time I have heard something like three 
thousand 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 controversy 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 what the menu was for a 
single one of those meals. But I do know this: they 
all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to 
do my work. If my wife had not given me those meals, 
I would be dead today." 

No comments were made on the sermon contents anymore.

When you are DOWN to nothing.... God is UP to something!

Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible and 
receives the impossible!
