    I am not bothered by sharing a hymnal. I use powerpoint or memory.

    The church service always go over, babies go to the nursery.

    I sip coffee (or pepsi), chew gum (or cookies), I move around a lot or I fall asleep. So, I can't peeve to those things.

    People who fall asleep during the service

    Only people with a clear conscience can sleep in
    a service. :laugh:

    Actually a preacher should be pleased if people
    sleep when he preaches:
    Dreaming while asleep is the way our mind takes
    things from the daily temporary memory
    (largely the things we have seen /read/ and heard)
    and puts it into permanent memory.
    So preacher, I think SO MUCH OF YOUR SERMON --
    I'm putting it STRAIGHT into permanent memory! :saint:

    We don't allow food or drinks in the sanctuary and we have a wonderful nursery for our babies.

    If the Holy Spirit is working in our midst; it would be a sin to quench Him by stopping the service because of the time.

    We have an optional nursery, if babies cry a lot parents usually take them there. But it shouldn't be a given that babies are going to the nursery.
    I sometimes take a bottle of water with me, depends on how thirsty I am that day, because of the diabetes I get real thirsty and dehydrated.
    Ok, whose spouse has been winked at or had kisses blown to them in church service? Are there people who do that? Well, I guess thers all kinds.

    We need Blackbird to sit next to us in church, to protect my wife & to protect Saggy, if she shows up.

    This choice was tongue and cheek, to add a sillyness but it actually happened. More than once.

    Diabetics are exempted from the 'drink/food' rules in
    my church.s worship places.

    As Head usher I also know those alergic
    to certain perfumes &/or dryer-static-reducers
    who keep having to leave the
    service (and a few who stay home because
    of the problem). That is where the
    real rules should be - Pepsi will clean off the
    carpet.

    [changes are stray 'l' removal :( ]

    I'm 64 now, but 34 years ago when I joined my current
    church, I liked to catch drippy baby mouth stuff
    with my suit coat ;)

    I am guilty of nodding off. There is a wonderful lady that sits behind me that will nudge me ever so often. I have asked her to do this because I am a very loud snorer. I would hate to humiliate myself.
