Thought For The Day

Same Old Stuff

Seems like everybody is checking the mail, watching the ads, and asking around, about all the new things that are going on at Church. So many Churches have new stuff every week; a new rock band, new and unique kinds of preaching, new ways to worship and learn, and new stuff for everyone to do.

It’s no wonder the Church I attend is not setting attendance records. We’re not looking for a new model. We just keep on doing the same thing week after week. We’re singing the great hymns and songs of the faith (many written in the last few years –along with those written a couple of centuries ago) and the preaching is still an exposition of the Word of God. We’re still praying, confessing sin, and learning how to llove one another. Some folks find that’s pretty boring, at least by today’s standards.
