Years ago, while traveling down Highway 23 in eastern Kentucky, we would pass by a beautiful brick church. It was in an ideal location.

The church was closed and the windows were broken out, there had not been services there for many years.

I pondered one day -- wonder what happened to that church? Why is it closed, and the windows broken out and the weeds all growing around?

On one trip, I pondered this aloud? My oldest son, then 9 or 10, said, I know Dad, I know why it is vacant.

I said, well OK, tell me?

He replied, LOOK THE GRAVE YARD IS FULL ALL AROUND THE CHURCH, ALL THEIR MEMBERS DIED! They never reached out to the next generation?

My heart was broken, for there was probably an element of truth to this lesson.
