Let us Remember
Almighty God, in whose hands are the living and the dead; We give you thanks for all those your servants who have laid down their lives in the service of our country. Grant them your mercy and the light of your presence, that the good work you have begun in them may be perfected; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord. Amen.
Why Go To Church
(copied from anonymous)
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 203,000 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!
