Unknown — A story is told about Daniel Webster…

A story is told about Daniel Webster.  During his days in the city of Washington the great statesman attended worship regularly in a little rural church outside the city.  Some of his colleagues were disturbed about it.  They said it lacked prestige.  And they asked him why he attended a little church in the sticks when he would be welcome in the more fashionable churches in Washington.  Webster answered that when he attended church in Washington they preached to Daniel Webster, the statesman, but in the little church, they preached to Daniel Webster, the sinner.
