There are many reasons, tell us yours. smile.gif


--------------------
Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.
- Frederick Buechner



If society prospers at the expense of the intangibles,
how can it be called progress?

I am a serious social butterfly so I really enjoy the fellowship. I do enjoy the teachings because it enriches my knowledge. It helps me to focus and dig deeper into the word. I also go for support and a shoulder to lean on sometimes.

Although we have lived here for 25 years, until very recently neither the wife nor I had any blood relatives nearby. Last winter, her sister moved up here. Our church has been our extended family for the past quarter decade. I go for all the other reasons; worship, fellowship, a responsibility to the Church, but I also go because going to church is a family get together for me.

To worship, learn something taught from the Bible, to encourage (and sometimes be encouraged by) other believers there.


--------------------
"All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king..."

It re-news my soul. And it prepares me to meet the challenges of the new week with God at my side. No matter what life throws at me, I know that I am well armed to meet it.

I don't go to a building to worship or pray... my cathedral is the great outdoors as the creator made it!

One can not profess to be of "GOD" and show intolerence and prejudice towards the beliefs of others.

He that keeps not his arms in time of peace will have none in time of war.

As is mine, Shadows. But, I need more as well, so I go to church. The cathedral made by the hands of God feeds me, being in community with others, hearing sermons challenges me. I am challenged by the words of scripture, the words of the sermons and I am ultimately challenged when interacting with others in Christian love. rolleyes.gif I also go to church to contribute. If it were all about me, I'd not need a church building or family very much. Such is the life of an introvert. But, God gave me certain talents and it is my duty to share them for the good of the body. So, I sing in choirs and Praise Band. I lead children's choirs. I write plays and skits. I participate and sometimes teach Sunday School. And in the community I find something I would live without if it were up to me.

Well, I suppose there are several reasons why I go. For refreshment, to worship together with others, out of obedience to God's command, for the encouragement and fellowship of other Christians. I think all of these are important.
