Ninety Percent of Life Is Showing Up

by Michael Potemra


One Sunday a mother shook her son awake, telling him it was time to go to church. No effect. Ten minutes later she was back: “Get out of bed immediately and go to church.” “Mother, I don’t want to. It’s so boring! Why should I bother?” “For two reasons: You know you must go to church on a Sunday, and secondly, you are the bishop of the diocese.”
