Quick Hits 5

Sometimes I hear an utterance or catch a quick visual of something that sticks in my mind. As this sensory input rolls about in my head, several different outcomes are possible. It might be the case that after a moment of consideration, the input is deleted as uninteresting, trivial, or too much for me to deal with. However, another possible outcome is that the input keeps demanding my attention. It somehow wants me to wrestle with it and give it more than just a passing notice. In such cases, they can end up here, in my blog series called Quick Hits.

I have been part of a church that would cancel services or change service times if there happened to be a conflict with the airing of a major sports championship on T.V.. This seems to me to be sending the wrong message that our worship time should play second fiddle to something far less important.

What do you think?
