The Inner Path: When Sunday Comes

 http:/thelifeandstuff.blogspot.comWhen Sunday comes and you get ready to rejuvenate your spirit by going to church to draw near to God with a sincere heart, be aware that people don't all go there for the purpose of meeting with God, or for the purpose of listening to messages that would impart their lives positively.
