This thread plays off the other thread about "Politics in Corporate Worship". For those churches that display flags, where do you place the flags? I mean, what order do you place them in? The order of honor is to the right on on top. In other words, the flag representing the greatest entity should be placed to the right of other flags or to the top of the flag pole if on a pole. Where is your Christian flag in relation to the U.S. Flag? I was in a church one time that decided to start displaying flags, so we bought some nice flags and put the displays together. Knowing from my military training that the place of honor is to the right, I placed the Christian flag on the right (the speaker's right, on the left as you look at the podium) and the U.S. flag on the left. Right in the middle of the announcements a lady got up from her pew and walked up to the podium, picked up flags and swapped them around, looked at me (she knew I had placed them) and said, "The American flag should always be on the right!" I had never thought about it that much before that day, but when she said that, I realized that we were already flying flags on the flagpole with the Christian flag under the American flag. I didn't make an argument out of it and we went on without a debate. But as a follow up to the issue I was watching a DVD about WWII, a filmstrip made in 1945 in which I saw a formal military flag display that had THE CHRISTIAN FLAG ON TOP of the U.S. flag. Ever since then I've wondered just where and when and how we lost the proper perspective on displaying flags. Again, how do you disply your flags? My own position is that flags should not be displayed in or around a Church, neither should there be any "politics" (patriotic) services in the Church. But if flags are going to be displayed, the Christian flag should have the place of honor. And if you're going to display the flags with the Christian flag on top, you're going to have to admit to holding some dominionist views, aren't you?
