Do You Find the Services Dull?

Some members find the services of the church dull and uninteresting. They attend only from a sense of duty, hoping to escape the eternal fires of hell. But they derive no joy from the services. Having come, they interest themselves in their neighbor’s clothes or children or other distractions, and if the building is comfortably warm in the winter or cool in the summer, they might even enjoy a pleasant nap.

People enjoy what they have been trained to appreciate. The musician enjoys a concert. The artist enjoys an art gallery. The spiritually minded enjoy the services of the church. To the carnally-minded, they are a bore. *
