I would like the opinion of the pastors here on the subject of sermons running over. I'm talking like 15 - 25 minutes every Sunday. My pastor says the Holy Spirit is moving him in his sermons and he just can't cut him off. However, when he has something to do right after church, such as preach elsewhere or a fundraiser for his youth ski trip, he seems to be willing to cut the HS off at the knees. Attendance is dropping off and most of the people have expressed dissatisfaction with the matter. I no longer attend the worship service, leaving right after Bible study, as I no longer have a worshipful attitude. The altar calls, which somehow turn into another sermon, consist only of his wife and kids and one other person every single Sunday. Nobody wants to go up and drag things out after an hour and a half service. The Spirit is apparently not speaking to very many of them. Your thoughts?
