Before I left church yesterday, a little Sunday School kid said, “I won’t be here this Sunday. Can you give me a hug? And can you remember my name?” Suddenly I knew what Jesus felt like when he picked up children with their arms wide open, and I’m reminded that every human desire is really to be known and to be loved. It’s the heart of a kid who doesn’t want to be forgotten.
Anonymous asked: why shoud we go to church? we can serve God in home or somethin
A church goer wrote to the editor of a newspaper and stated that it is not makes sense to go to church every Sunday.
"I have gone to church for 30 years and during this time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for my life, except for one or the other, I can not remember the most of them … So, I think I’m wasting my time and the pastors are also wasting their time. "
This started a real controversy in the “Letters to the Editor” to the delight of the editor in chief of the newspaper, which received several letters, of which he decided to publish this response from another reader:
"I have been married for over 30 years. During this time my wife has cooked some 3,000 meals. But for my life, except for one or the other, I can not remember most of them, but one thing I know they all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my job. If my wife had not given me these meals, I and our children would be malnourished or dead. Likewise, if I had not gone to church for feed my soul and my family, we would these terrible spiritual condition. "
