An interesting comment: perhaps after all the services I’d taken part in over Christmas I ought to take a Sunday off going to church?
In fact, we went to St George’s Church in Owlsmoor and had a great time of worship with them, and the sermon stimulated some interesting thoughts. What we would have missed by staying at home!
To me, being in church on a Sunday is just like eating and taking exercise – it’s just part of life. I need the spiritual input just as much as I need physical nourishment and exercise, and it’s great to meet with my brothers and sisters in Christ who worship in another location. The great thing about going to another church, which we always do when we’re on holiday, is that my wife and I can sit together and just worship, rather than having to lead or preach. That’s a real holiday treat!
