At Church

Happy Sunday!

"We assemble not in the church to pass away the time, but to gain some great benefit for our souls. If therefore we depart without profit, our zeal in frequenting the church will prove our condemnation. That so great a judgment comes not upon you, when ye go hence ponder the things ye have heard, and exercise yourselves in confirming our instruction—friend with friend, fathers with their children...rejoice and be glad in the conviction that ye have put into practice the greater part of our exhortation."
-John Chrysostom (345?-407)
