    I came across the following on a different bulletin board, and thought it was pretty good, so I decided to share it here.

    What are yout thoughts or comments?

    God Bless!!!

    --------------------------------

    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!"

    Just for the record, I go to church because the bible tells me not to forsake the assembling of ourselves.

    I go for the preaching / teaching

    I go to serve

    ...and besides, where else can you go to get free coffee and donuts every week??? :D :D :D

    God Bless!!!

    Well, I'm sure somebody actually pays for the donuts :D :D . Actually a person in the mens group I'm in brings them each week, I just haven't been a part of it long enough for it to be my turn yet, but I know it's coming. They won't be free that morning hehehe [​IMG] [​IMG]

    God Bless!!!
