Subject: Fw: Why go to Church?

This is an oldie but goodie. Needs to be sent around every so often.

It’s been around before but is a good reminder…might be good in the church bulletin???

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

All right, now that you’re done reading, send it on!

I think everyone should read this!

"When Satan is knocking at your door, simply say, "Jesus, could you get
that for me?"
