First United Church Wawa – Third Sunday in Lent

The message for this week was ‘Worship – are you Regular?’

We all go to church if we feel moved to do so, Christmas, Easter, Funerals, Weddings and sometimes just for the sake of going. A little story “ Two fellas were having coffee and church came up in the conversation. One said “You know, I’ve gone to worship for 30 years now and in that time, I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can’t remember a single on of them. So I think I’m wasting my time and the ministers are wasting theirs.” The other fella thought for a moment and replied. ‘You know I’ve been married for 30 years. In that time, my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals. But for the life of me I can’t recall the entire menu for a single meal. 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 those meals, I would be physically dead today. Likewise, if I had not gone to worship for nourishment I would be spiritually dead today,’

Regardless of what faith you belong to, you do need some nourishment, so pick a place of faith and try the nourishment offered.
