SIMPLE QUESTION

Well I’m definitely in a routine. Even though I tried to sleep in an extra 25 minutes today, I was still awake by 4:50. The last 3 days (weeks?) left me a little tired this morning, so I just ran a very easy 6 miles with some strides. I’m going to try and get in another 5-6 mile run tonight to help bump my mileage a little.

The weather remains very nice – although some would consider it cold; 40-45 degrees. I’m not sure what the latest date I’ve ever worn pants while running is, but I’d guess that May 20th is getting pretty close.

Since I don’t have much going on, I’ll post a simple question. Does anyone else find church boring? Lately I’ve been lucky - with the girls in Sunday school and my wife teaching, I’ve been able to get out of going to church. However, once in a while I have to go – like last Sunday. The whole time all I could think about was how bored I was. And I can’t believe I’m the only one sitting there thinking that. Seriously, I could think of about a million things I’d rather do than sit in church. I’m sure this all stems from not going to church as a kid.

Chad,

You have the wrong church. Try one with good teaching, one that's more concerned with whether you are growing in love for God and other people and isn't "playing" church.

Chad,

Could be your church or what your expectations are from your church. I really enjoy my church but what makes it exciting for me is what the church is doing. Feeding the hungry, helping at risk kids, reaching out to single moms, etc. It makes me excited to be a part of a group that is making a difference. But everyone has different things that are important to them. I would look at what is important to you then find a church that is providing that ministry. Just my thoughts.

Are are you just trying to stir up controversy, or are you being serious?

No, you're definitely not the only one bored to death in there. Mind, I've got at least another dozen reasons why I don't go any more.

Anon, hard to teach someone that doesn't care to learn.

Jim, I don't have any expectations, maybe that's the problem. I guess I don't understand why "things that are important to me" need to be found through church.

Thomas, if I were trying to stir up controversy, I'd go to letsrun.com and post on this topic. I don't think posting here for my dozen readers is going to generate too much controversy - but I could be wrong.
