Before each service I like to start with something a little interesting! In the divinity school we liked to look at the funnier side of religion.
I heard a very interesting story about a wonderful mother. She was inviting a lot of friends over for dinner. And so all the friends came, she welcomed them so warmly, and they sat before the table, they all sat down for dinner and it was a beautiful feast that was prepared.
She leaned out to her 6 year old daughter and she said, “Honey would you like to give the blessing (to pray)?” And the 6 year old daughter looked up to mom and said, “Mom I don’t know how to pray, I don’t know what to say”. The mom said, “Don’t worry, just say what mommy says, you’ll do fine.” And the child bowed down her head. She began to pray, “Dear Lord! Why did I invite all these people?” The mommy got up and said, “Honey, God is calling you in the kitchen. Get over here!”
