I've written at some length about the mega-church closing issue, but now I see it isn't just them. Smaller churches around the country, including two that I've seen around here, are closing their doors on Christmas Day.
I was talking about this with my Dad yesterday on the way to Church, and he said, "Isn't Christmas on a Sunday?" I said yes. Then he asked, "wouldn't they be open anyway, on a Sunday?" I affirmed that. He then added, "and wouldn't they be open on Christmas, too?" I answered that I supposed they would be. "So why are they closed when it's Christmas and a Sunday, which should give them two reasons to offer a service?"
Good points, Dad. Good points. :)
