Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.


"Church was Wednesday and Friday nights and four times Sunday, and Halie never missed. Church didn't mind if you were barefoot. Church took you in when your heart ached from knowing your mother was far away in heaven. Church was home."

           --Roxane Orgill, Mahalia: A Life in Gospel Music (Candlewick, 2002)
