EXCEPT A SEED FALLS TO THE GROUND…

Many years ago, I used to attend a certain denomination. I knew God had led me there for that season, but certain things began to happen and I decided to leave.

I was going to church out of duty – and because you went to church on Sundays – but I disliked it. It was dry, boring, had too many (unnecessary) programs, the preaching was monotonous, the people were few…you name it…
