Did you know that 70% of those who do not attend a church have never been invited?  Well, today, I’m inviting you.  Church is not a place for righteous, outstanding people, with no problems.  You might even consider it a hospital for sinners. It’s where you can go every week to reaffirm what you believe, refresh yourself with the Word and Sacraments, help others who need help, work together, encourage, praise, give thanks and ask God for all your physical and spiritual needs.

Church is like a huge group home, where we gather together and receive nourishment from the Bible.  We sing hymns to the glory of our Creator.  Sure it’s just a building, but it’s what inside that makes it a church.  Those who attend come because they need to be fed, they need God’s forgiveness, they know that His love permeates these walls.  What they take home with them is usually more than enough to sustain them for the coming week.

Jesus knew that the temple was a holy place and He went there to pray often.  He is our example for all things in life, so let’s follow Him by giving Him the adoration He deserves.


Jesus will be there waiting with open arms.  He will accept everyone who turns to Him.  He doesn’t discriminate.  He doesn’t look down His nose at you. He is our brother and He wants everyone to be His heir and live with Him in eternity.


As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    That was awesome. We did all day. Started 930 and got home at 800. Our oldest member died and the funeral was today she was 97 and a member for 78 years. So we had morning prayer, Sunday School and preaching then fed the family. Then had the funeral. Then hung out and ate more dessert. Then evening service and a snack after. Way too much food got prepared for the family so we all just ate it. Then came home and some friends had made supper for us and brought it over. She is 5th and made us an etouffee. It was a good day as any day in God’s house with God’s people is.

    Reblogged this on Truth in Palmyra and commented:

    For those who read my blog regularly, you certainly know how important I believe the local church to be. It is that important. Jesus started it Himself after all! Be blessed, and I hope to see you all this morning. Thanks, Kathy for these great thoughts.
