The Church of Pooh

"Churches routinely refer to themselves as bodies or families. That makes the members parts of the body or members of the family. Not only do churches need each member’s money—as skeptics often accuse—they also need each member’s gifts and strengths. The world says a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, but the church says each link is strong because the whole body stands together. The older ones are there to teach the younger ones. The weaker ones can lean on the stronger ones. The body supports the individual so that each life is better." Connie Pursifel

What does this have to do with A.A. Milne, you ask?

That is the opening paragraph from "The Church of Pooh." It is a delighful post from the wife of one of my cyber buddies, Darrell Pursifel of Disert Paths. Hop or fly or bumble over there and read Connie Pursifel's entry. As a Winnie-the-Pooh fan from way back, her lovely post has me smiling and pondering at the same time.

I guess if I can write about Linus, Connie can write about Pooh.
