Why church history?

- "For years I kept a cartoon on my study door. Students who stopped to read it often stepped into my office smiling. It encouraged easy conversation. It was a Peanuts strip. Charlie Brown’s little sister, Sally, is writing a theme for school titled “Church History.” Charlie, who is at her side, notices her introduction: “When writing about church history, we have to go back to the very beginning. Our pastor was born in 1930.” Charlie can only roll his eyes toward the ceiling." Shelley, Bruce L.. Church History in Plain Language, Fifth Edition (p. 1). Zondervan Academic. Kindle Edition.
