Spiritual Life

IS GOING TO CHURCH A WASTE OF TIME?

I was handed a piece of paper recently over a very nice lunch in Corralejo!
This is what it said. There was no name attached.
A Churchgoer 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 3000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can’t remember a single one of them. So I think I am wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all”

Has the world gone crazy?

This was a question posed to be by a Christian friend recently after reading the story of a nurse suspended for offering to pray for a patient. Yes she offered to pray FOR not WITH the patient. This was enough for her bosses to suspend her because they felt she had inappropriately introduced her faith into her caring role. As a hospital chaplain I used to lecture nurses on how they could best meet the religious and spiritual needs of patients!
