Why Go To Church

A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained
that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday.  "I've gone for 30
years now," he wrote, "and in that time I have heard something 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 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 the entire menu
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 these meals,
I would be physically dead today.  Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment,
I would be spiritually dead today!" 
When you are DOWN to nothing.... God is UP to something!
