    A couple of Sundays later, she found herself at church. The vicar couldn't believe his eyes.

    One of the people was a well-known lady called Jan. She had many friends, but was often treated cautiously for her sharp tongue. No quite sure why the Lord had asked him to pray for Jan, the vicar, meeting her in the street, blurted out what he was doing. Jan was apparently to surprised to say much. A couple of Sundays later, she found herself at church. The vicar couldn't believe his eyes

    Re: find oneself at church

    Where is this text from?
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    ...and the author is Brian Mills, whose name must be mentioned when you are quoting copyright text.

    This has been like pulling teeth, sitifan. Not for the first time, please state the source and author of your quotations in post #1.

    She probably surprised herself in feeling motivated to go to church.
