The following message was sent out from my church this week:
Super Bowl party directly following the 5:30 service! The service will be kept short and we will be recording the Super Bowl – so you won’t miss any of the game or any commercials. Bring your favorite Super Bowl dish or snack to share. (My emphasis added.)
Seriously?? I certainly have skipped church on occasion for likely unworthy causes but never to sit in front of the TV. This is why I sometimes hate this country. Now the question is, do I want to go to that service at all knowing that there will be all kinds of references to football?
(I don’t know why that paragraph is so small. I can’t find anything on here to change the size or type of the font.)
