    I will record it so I can zip through the game and 1/2 time show and watch the commercials, plus the long gain and scoring plays. Will only take about 1/2 hour. :)

    Many Pastors maintain an interest in professional sport to establish a means whereby laypeople and the lost can engage in conversation.

    But I agree that we have our priority wrong if we put our time with digital devices over our time with our brothers and sisters.

    We have no evening service anyway, and I won't be watching.

    And anyone caught watching the game will be Left Behind! 15 years late but just in case I probably won't watch the game.

    We move our Sunday night service to 5 PM and most everyone can get home before the kick off.

    A few years ago, I suggested to the deacons that we just cancel evening services for SB Sunday. Unanimously they said no, so we had services as schedule. On that Sunday night, the deacon board unanimously stayed home to watch the game. Since then, we just change the time.

    We don't have a Sunday night service so we won't be canceling it for the Super Bowl. Our young adults ministry will be meeting at my daughter's boyfriend's house for the game.

    It has been a few years since I have been to church on Sunday nights on purpose. And then, we had Super bowl services sometimes.

    We are much more spiritual than all of you. We do not have Sunday night services but are having one on Super Bowl Sunday just to demonstrate how spiritual we are. We will not be showing any of the SB, we will not mention the SB, we will not have roast beef sandwiches and hot wings and we will not have any display of cheering and/or pompoms.
