Puritan Board Professor
Just to be fair to those that are slammed during the other 6 days a week I understand and am very sympathetic in that I am one of those. Now do not get me wrong my favorite people to be around is other Christians and am blessed to be around a lot of them even though they are not part of my local body. This area is one I am very concerned about because I wish not to make any feel guilty because they don't participate in the other extra curricular activities (Secular) a church may offer. I know for a fact that many feel and think one is not spiritual enough if they do not tear themselves away home or work during the regular days of the week to hang around the facility at the local church. Now I wish to express this with the utmost respect for you Rich but the ones I get this feeling is from is elders and those who are able and willing to be there the other 6 days a week.I'm not too thrilled by the cultural pattern that people are pretty much slammed throughout the week with various scheduling things like sports and music activities so what some Churches are able to do is to offer some of those things for free and the Church becomes the place where, instead of everyone being scattered, they end up at that Church. Instead of only seeing each other on Sunday, they see each other throughout the week.
