Christmas & Church services on Sunday are you Attending

Wednesday, December 21, 2011



I know before I write anything this is going to be a controversial subject. Before we hit fall many pastors were tweeting about what churches were going to do on Christmas day, even saying that some were not holding service and how "sad" that was. Christ said that the Sabbath was made for man not man for the Sabbath, yet in modern day Christianity we seem to get all tied in knots over it. Me personally I think it's ridiculous! Sunday is called the day of rest yet it is anything but! Have you tried to get yourself and small children out the door for church, and get dinner in a crock pot on Sunday morning? You need to be up at the crack of dawn. That is not restful! Add Christmas on top of it and you have complete and utter chaos! Kids will be diving for the Christmas gifts under the tree and parents will be pushing them out the door for church. Then it is getting back after church and cooking the big holiday meal. Don't get me wrong I am not anti-church, I attend every Sunday. Our church is having a candle light service Christmas-eve and a combined service on Christmas day. I think personally going as a family to the candle light service Christmas-eve and spending the day together on Christmas is a better solution than fussing around on Christmas day to allow kids to open a few gifts, get them dressed in perfect Christmas wear, and out the door.

So true...it's often not restful at all! Great post.

I hope you have a great Christmas..and a relaxing one too!

Thanks Jeremy. I was very leery about posting this, but am glad I did. I hope you have a great Christmas and a relaxing one as well!

Absolutely agree with your post. I now wish that more people felt the same way. Hope you have a Christ filled Christmas.

Thanks Steve! Honestly I think a lot of people are afraid to break out of tradition. Especially if we are regular church attenders it feels strange not to go on a Sunday, especially on the Lord's Birthday, yet some don't even think about what it's like with kids. Mine are grown and gone now, but I do remember and it wasn't fun! Wishing you and your family a Christ filled Christmas!
