You must go to church

Here are some new stats that Faron found about attending church

Current worship attendance is also linked to parental religious involvement. When someone grows up with both a mother and a father attending religious services at least occasionally, there is a 62% chance that individual is now regularly attending services as an adult. When someone grows up with only one parent attending services at least occasionally, there is a 50% chance he or she is now attending worship regularly. But when an individual grows up with neither parent regularly attending religious worship services, there is only a 33% chance that person is now regularly attending religious services

Faron's fav quotes

I love these two quotes. I did a poll on Friday, on most listeners liked #1, more than #2.. Don't forget to email your favorite quote.

Quote #1
Do all the good you can
By all the means you can
In on the ways you can
In all the places you can
At all the times you can
To all the people you can
As long as you can
John Wesley

One of Jenn's Favorite Recipies

WW Chicken and Broccoli w/ Garlic Sauce - 5 Pts.
2 tsp olive oil
1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 tsp dried thyme, or 2 tbsp fresh minced thyme, or to taste
1/2 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
3 medium garlic clove(s), minced, or more to taste
2 cup broccoli, florets
1 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
1 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch
2 cup cooked brown rice, kept hot
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken on a plate and season with thyme, salt and pepper. Add garlic to skillet and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add chicken to skillet and cook until browned on all sides, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes.
Add broccoli to skillet, cover and cook 2 minutes. Add 1 cup of broth, cover and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
In a cup, dissolve cornstarch in remaining 1/2 cup of broth; add to skillet. Simmer until mixture thickens, stirring constantly, about 1 minute; serve over rice. Yields about 1 cup of chicken and broccoli and 1/2 cup of rice per serving.
