Shawna and Sundays
I hate Sundays like today. Here's what our day looked like:
9 a.m. Chad and I lead the high school class
10 a.m. Worship
11:30 a.m. Potluck lunch meeting for small group leaders (we lead the college group)
3:30 p.m. Meeting for youth group volunteers
5 p.m. Worship
6:30 p.m. Junior high kids at our house
A lot of times when we have Sundays like this, I don't have time to go to church because I'm so busy getting ready for the other stuff. We had Julia's birthday party yesterday (which was her most fun party ever, by the way), so I didn't have time to get anything ready for today's potluck. So I left church right after communion this morning to go to the store. Then I had to miss worship tonight to get ready for the jr. high kids. It's just really dumb to have a schedule like this. I usually enjoy all the things we did today -- as long as they're not all on the same day.
A couple of weeks ago, my parents spent a Sunday at Galveston and instead of popping into a church somewhere, had their own time with God on the beach at sunset. Now that's a real day of worship, if you ask me.
