    “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.’

  • I recently made chicken and dumplings for dinner — a nice Sunday one. These kind of meals usually remind me of my grandmother, but on this day I couldn’t help but think of my own mother and the story she once told.

    My dad always teased Mother about the fact that when he married her, she didn’t know how to boil water. That wasn’t exactly true, though.  Mother came from a very poor family and had to learn to do many things while growing up, cooking included. Since my grandmother was such a good cook, I am sure my mother learned well from her.
