Terry,

Another homerun! I have a few days off this week, and I am planning on leaving town to get away- I live alone- I am single! Got to clear that plate! Thank you for reminding me of that! When I saw you said just Sunday morning! I started to rejoice! Ministry supposed to be 24/7. It would send the right message to churchgoer- outside the building it has to take place. I wish I were headed to Tulsa and take you to lunch- I don't believe I will go that far from Atlanta! Be Good! TD

Amen Terry!!!!! Another homerun! In a book I’m reading, The Cross Examination of Jesus Christ, the author makes a point about the Sabbath and how the Pharisees turned it into a day of legalistic burdens and regulations “in the name of piety.” It left me wondering about our own relationship with God and what we pile on “in the name of piety.” I do think one of the things my generation has added to the function of the church is a “holy business” that can run its members to exhaustion and replace deep relationship with God and others. In our mad dash to get from one activity to the next, we no longer enjoy the art of being still with God, or with other people. We’re really missing something. God rested, Jesus retreated, why do we think we can’t?

Terry, we actually did pull the plug on the church calendar a few years ago at Long Beach and it was a huge blessing. The only ministry we now engage in as a community is one that really makes a difference in the lives of unwed mothers. Otherwise our entire emphasis is on ministry where you are each day rather than church-based ministries.

Good blog!

Something I was just discussing recently with my mom. I think you wrote this for her.

It's sometimes so hard to say no without feeling guilty. Thanks for the reminder that it's ok to say no sometimes and not feel guilty about it. I have to admit, my first though when I saw is your plate to full, is yes, it seems to always be too full and I was actually thinking of the lunch and dinner plate!! :) And yes, those need to be cut back too!! :) Thanks for the reminders... in more than one way :)

Great post today Terry and it goes well to balance some thougths I've been having about our church becoming a "one-day a week" church.
