How to go to church

23 May 2022 | Church | 0 comments

When once thy foot enters the church, be bare.

God is more there, than thou: for thou  art there

Only his permission….

Resort to sermons, but prayers the most:

Praying’s the end of preaching….


In time of service  seal up both thine eyes,

And send them to thine heart; that spying sin,

They may weep out the stains by the them did rise:

Those doors being shut, all by the ear comes in.

Who marks in church-time other symmetry,

Makes all their beauty his deformity.


George Herbert (1593-1633).
