I remember as a child I had a pastor that would bang on the pulpit as loud as he could. Now, as a pastor myself, I look out across the auditorium and understand what he was TRULY doing. It is amazing to me how fast people can fall asleep in church. I know everyone gets tired sometimes, but there are a few people in my church that are asleep just as soon as the offering is over. It makes me laugh in a way, but on the other hand, it is a bit irritating when you have prepared to deliver what God has given you and some folks could care less.
