It’s weird not doing something you are so used to doing every week. Yesterday, we canceled our worship service due to inclement weather. It felt quite strange not going to church. After doing it for most of my life and it has just become part of me.
But I must say I enjoyed the break. Sounds bad coming from a pastor…I know. But it was really nice to spend the time with my family and just hang out. Usually Sundays are very busy for us. To make matters worse, we lost an hour of sleep due to Daylight Savings.
It’s always a tough decision to cancel church. I mean you never know whose life is going to be greatly impacted through that one service. But I thought about what I was going to be preaching on, stress, and realized I would put people in greater stress trying to get to church safely. I love irony. I think we made the right decision and I am rested and looking forward to this coming weekend!
