In the 11+ years I’ve been a Children’s Pastor, I hardly know what it is like to “attend” church. Typically I’d miss 2-4 weekends a year for the last decade. On those weekends, I’d either be on vacation or something like that. On those weekend that I attended another church, I was usually checking them out and had an agenda for being there.
So, since I’ve been “out,” my eyes have been opened. It’s just easy to go to church. I figured that I would probably become a Saturday church attendee if I could… I like to have my mornings to sleep in. However, on the first weekend I had free I was amazed at how much time I had on Sunday morning. I got up, fed my son, watched a movie on DVD, got dressed and then still made it to the 11:00 service. I was back home by 12:20. That’s too easy. I understand being busy and having all kinds of commitments, but committing local church attendance isn’t so bad… especially when you attend a casual “come as you are” church. That way I don’t even have to shower.
