How to Live Longer

Recently, I was talking with a research psychiatrist in our nation’s capital. This doctor works for the National Institute of Mental Health, which is a federal government office. “Yes,” he said in reply to a question I asked him, “our research shows that people who do attend regularly definitely live longer.”

“People who attend what?” you wonder. The sports center, the theater, the flower show?

No, you know what I’m going to write, don’t you? People who attend CHURCH regularly definitely do live longer. That’s what the research showed, according to this good doctor I talked with.

Now, I don’t see this as the primary reason to be a church attender. But, it is kind of a nice side benefit. No matter what you may have chosen to do today, why not plan now to attend church next Sunday. If so, God bless you and may you have a long life!


I am grateful that I continue to hear how positively readers are responding to my latest book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is available at by clicking here.

In this book, I offer some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what their pastor has said from the pulpit.
