(Windows 7 finally arrived today. After spending the better part of the day installing the product, I’m not yet certain it was absolutely beneficial. It looks neat though. It only took one day shy of an entire month for it to show up.)
Today is Saturday. Tomorrow is Sunday. A.k.a the Lord’s Day. Traditionally, it was a day of church in the morning and most stores closed. But years ago it was decided that stores don’t have to close after all. So the only thing that is certain to be closed is a particular chicken sandwhich shop.
I’ve done lost count on the exact number of churches we’ve visited on the Lord’s Day. It seems that in this area there are dozens of little white baptist churches named after their particular neighborhood. In fact, according to an advertisement on television, there is a ‘Flippin Church’ somewhere out there.
I don’t know about you, but it’s been particularly difficult to properly make the Lord’s Day about him since we’ve moved. Between construction, holdouts dragging their feet, juggling time zones, dozens of miles of travel to get anywhere, and some other odds’n’ends there isn’t any set schedule that allows any consistancy of any sort.
So how do you make the Lord’s Day all about Him when everything going on encourages just the opposite?
