I always feel a little sorry for the people I see on Sunday mornings who obviously aren’t going to church. Now don’t misunderstand. My pity isn’t a smugness like I’m better than they are. It’s more of a compassionate nature, like I’m privileged to be involved in something special and they’re missing out on it. You identify at all with what I’m saying?
The church doesn’t get the good press it should. So I have kind of taken the role of publicity agent. And when I stop to get coffee at McDonald’s, say, and the young fellow tells me, “Have a good day,” I say, “Well, I had a good start in church this morning.” That’s if it’s Sunday.
Can you join me in my efforts? Maybe we can get the word to some of those who are missing out. They are missing out on one of the greatest joys in life.
I sincerely invite you to read my latest book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is available at Amazon.com by clicking here.
This book gives some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what you’ve said from the pulpit when they come to worship services in the church where you serve as pastor.
