Question of the Week – #6

Why do we spend so little time thinking about what happens on Sunday morning, but place such a high value on attending on Sunday morning?

  1. What do you mean by what happens? I think some people are VERY worried about what happens depending on how you define it.

  2. That’s a good question Dan…

    What I was referring to was the fact that those people who are often considered the laity (or congregation) place a high value on attending Sunday morning, but they spend little time thinking about what took place on Sunday morning. Generally speaking of course.

    Thanks,

  3. Lew,

    Because pulpits have promulgated the traditions of Churchianity, teaching people that Being Seen To Be There, is more important than Being What We Say We Are.

  4. Lew,

    I think you could actually ask this both ways. Like you said, your original questions is appropriate for those who show up to a meeting with other believers (either on Sunday morning or any other time) without giving any thought to what God is doing in their lives, what God is doing in other people’s lives, how God would want to use them to impact other people’s lives, or how God could use them to stir up love and good work in other people’s lives.

    On the other hand, there are other believers who base their entire spiritual life on a Sunday morning meeting. They spend their entire week planning and working toward that one meeting. Perhaps a different question would be appropriate for these people.
