  1. But what if you go to church to humbly receive the Word and Gift that saves rather than bragging rights? I know my girls don’t agree, but receiving the Eucharist and celebrating in a community, even as out of town sleep deprived visitors, re supplies inner strength, reminds me of His love so I strive to love others.
