Every sunday in utah is also gone fishin, cuttin' the lawn, gotta work
(ugh), football, golf, or sleep, glorious sleep sunday in utah, once you've
reached the age of reason.
Hutterite,Most folks who attend church have "reached the age of
reason".You don't want to go? No problem. But please
don't insinuate that those who are religious (of any faith) are somehow
lacking in logic and reason.
Twin Lights,It is what it is. Denial is irrational.
Pastor Young,Free coffee won't motivate many in Utah to pop in, but
donuts!!! Now you're talking!!Maybe even a few members of the
Hutter Church will attend??
Last time I drove through Utah, I saw LDS meeting houses on nearly every block.
I didn't know they were all empty!
@mountanmanYep, because they're only open on Sunday and Tuesdays
usually; for church and for youth activities.
I am glad that so many in Utah take the opportunity to go out of their way and
go to church. Where they can visit with and get to know their neighbors. Share
uplifting and motivational messages with each other. Renew sacred covenants and
re-committing to help, love, and serve others. To dedicate one day a week
specifically to searching out truth and light. I know that for me,
I'm not likely to create service opportunities with my neighbors on my own,
or engage in community activities that build, and strengthen individuals and
their families without the constant encouragement and reminders that come from
church.Searching for light in the darkness is a very difficult
struggle when you are on your own.Darkness cannot drive out
darkness; only light can do that.~ MLK Jr.
The ScientistEveryone you know who is LDS is irrational? That seems
unlikely in the extreme.
LDS folks truly set a wonderful example regarding Sunday worship, even on
vacation. I have attended meetings in a few summer vacation areas which busted
at the seams on Sunday. Even lake resorts have little water recreation on Sunday
after meetings where LDS dominate.
