"Christianity is a person; it is not merely being good, or saying prayers, or going to church; but Christianity is Christ, and religion is a Friendship. Try, therefore, through every service to get to Him; for He never fails to hear; be your best, in order to be friends with Him Who holds the stars: for this is the greatness of man."
~Herbert F. Tomkinson.
Lambeth Church, Epiphany, 1915
How often should I go to church?
"A good rule of thumb, to begin with, is once a month; but you may always go more often, especially if there is anything you particularily want to talk to our Lord about, such as new work, any one ill, any fault that gets troublesome. Never stay away because you are in difficulties: that is the very time you need Him most."
"No thoughtful man is afraid to get down on his knees; he never says his regular prayers in bed (unless he is ill), nor does he "sit and lean forward" at prayers in church. On the contrary, he is proud to be the servant of the King of kings, and he is sorry for people who have such uneducated ideas of God, that they talk to Him in this discourteous attitude."
~My Prayer Book
