Go to Church – Why?
The following is a blog post by soulpancake.com. @tsparger turned me on to this site. This is a site where regular people ask spiritual questions and have discussion. This is a great site to look & see what people are thinking. It is probably a good idea to know what people are saying, thinking, and trying to understand, if we want to reach to them. Read the following post and weigh in with your thoughts. Why do people see the church as so irrelevant? Why is the church not captivating people’s attention? What can we do? Is America a post-Christian society? What are your thoughts?

“In terms of allocation of time resources, religion is not very efficient. There’s a lot more I could be doing on a Sunday morning.” —Bill Gates
Sunday School students of the world unite! Or de-unite! We get dressed up every weekend and burn gas to drive over to church and sit in those uncomfortable wooden seats. Why? Can’t I find deliverance watching Patrick Crayton haul in a Tony Romo pass with 105,120 other Cowboys fans? What if I just sat in solitude and read chapters out of Genesis or the Koran? What if I meditated? Or called my mom? Or took a walk in nature?
What’s the point of going to church when there are so many other spiritual things you could be doing?
I can’t wait to see some of your thoughts…
