BROADWAY BAPTIST CHURCH
I once read:
Some go to church to laugh and talk, and some go there to walk the walk.
Some go to church to meet a friend, and some go there an hour to spend.
Some go to church to find a bride, and some go there a fault to hide.
Some go to church to celebrate, and some go there to agitate.
Some go to church to doze and nod, but the wise go there to worship God.
