Why Go To Church?

Why Go To Church? A friend sent this to me.

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!  Faith sees the invisible, believes
the incredible and receives the impossible!  Thank God for our physical AND
our spiritual nourishment!
