Hello, I'm new here, but have been enjoying reading all the posts. I have a question about faithful church attendance. I go to an independent Baptist church (have been there since I was a little girl) and there is a strong emphasis on being there for every service (3 times a week) and activity. I have always found, even as a child, that Sundays is the most dreaded, most tiring day of the week, because of the running back and forth to services and practices. I find that I come home very frazzled and worn out and not able to be the mother I need to be (by the way-I'm a single mom.) So I guess I just wanted a little input about it. From what I understand, a hundred years ago or so, folks only attended church on Sunday mornings, but society was a much more wonderful, godly thing. Is God in all this busyness? I do love the Lord and want to please Him and honor Him in every area of my life and want to be a good example to all, but I also want to be able to minister to my family, which is the most important mission field I have. Thank you for reading.
