“For example, while scrolling through my Facebook feed last weekend, I came across multiple posts with sarcastic takes on how sad/interesting/ridiculous it is that people can get up early for a sale at Walmart or to sit on freezing seats for a sporting event, but they can’t get up for church on Sunday.
There are so many things wrong with that kind of thinking I hardly know where to start.”
And this …
“Church attendance or non-attendance is a less accurate measure of someone’s commitment level or spiritual maturity than we’ve convinced ourselves it is.”
Or this …
“That’s what we need to do.
Stop emphasizing guilt about church attendance. Start emphasizing the joy of belonging.”
