From "Price Road" by Elaine T. Jones

Price Road

The church ladies seemed to think on one accord: they discussed the other members of the congregation daily, they made joint decisions, they were alert for signs of back-sliders, without solicitation they personally advised members of the church about God’s spiritual expectations, and they developed strategies designed to help their fellow parishioners to become better Christians. The church ladies even developed a list of rules for holy and sanctified Christian living, which they tried to personally enforce, in order to help the sinners of the congregation get into heaven….
