5 Things I Would Like To See In Church Just Once

Just once…

  1. I want to see the pastor stand up and say, “I’m sorry but I’ve got nothing this week. Service dismissed. We’re going straight to Cracker Barrel. I’m paying.”

  2. I want to see a church sign that says “stay home and spend time with your kids this Sunday.”

  3. I want to see the losing quarterback testify in church saying, “I want to thank God that we got our butts whooped last week. We deserved it.”

  4. I want to hear someone in church say, “I got a word from God this week. He told me to sit down and shut up.”

  5. I want to see a hotdog vendor coming down the aisle in the 11:30 service when we’re all starting to get hungry saying, “Hot dogs! Get your hot dogs!”

Don’t judge me. You would like to see these things too!

    #1 A pastor that has spend a week pouring over the Scripture and on Sunday morning proclaims, “I’ve got nothing,” doesn’t sound like a church I want to attend.

    #2 after being in a sin-soaked world all week at school, the community, and the world and having an opportunity to spend the day together on Sunday, there’s no better place to find a family than in a church worshipping together.

    not judging just stating my opinion… just like you did.

      You are right! I wrote this in jest not trying to make spiritual points.
