I Enjoy Going to Church

When I go to church, I really enjoy talking to friends I’ve known over the years. I like to sing along with the congregation. I don’t sing much during the week. But in church—well, my voice kind of blends with all the others of the congregation, and I like that.

But most of all, when I go to church, I look forward to hearing the Lord speak to me, and reminding me about what really matters in life. This could happen while listening to the Scriptures being read, during a sermon, hearing a solo, celebrating Communion. God speaks in many ways.

But, if He doesn’t speak, if the supernatural encounter doesn’t occur, then for me, anyway, church isn’t all I want it to be.

As I start thinking about services this weekend, especially at this significant time of year, I just wanted to remind myself of these things and maybe you as well.

 


I am grateful that I continue to hear how positively readers are responding to 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.

In this book, I offer some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what their pastor has said from the pulpit.
