Most of us American Baptists are allergic to anything that has more than a few molecules of Romanism. As a result for the most part, the only holy day messages we preach are on Easter\Resurrection Sunday and Christmas. And Christmas day messages are preached only if Christmas happens to fall on a Sunday or Wednesday. My point is why should we let the liturgicals have all the fun.</font> Why shouldn't we have a Lord's Supper service on the Wednesday\Thursday before Resurection Sunday? What better time to focus on the commemeration's meaning?</font> Why shouldn't we have a service on "Good" Friday\Thursday? Can you think of a better day to preach on the blood atonement or the substitutionary atonement or any of the other significant doctrines involved with Our Lord's death on the cross?</font> Ascencion Day. Though. this day would be of more interest to the pre-mil\tribs. For us, it is a good day to preach on the Second Coming or Bema Seat.</font> Pentecost: preaching on the Holy Spirit, the church, ect.</font> These days are good for taking breaks from that series 101 Messages on 1 John.
