Thought this week I'd use some quotes from "famous" people to stimulate some thoughts and discussions. Here's the first one:

"Just in terms of allocation of time resources, religion is not very efficient. There's a lot more I could be doing on a Sunday morning." - Bill Gates

What I think what Mr. Gates is trying to say is "My time is valuable, and church takes up too much of it on Sunday mornings."

Do you agree? Are church services too long? Not long enough? How does your church demonstrate it values each attendee's time?

I don't agree with Bill Gates, but I do recognise that many people feel like him - i.e. better things to do on a Sunday morning.

This seems to me to be a challenge for local churches to show their relevance in other ways - through their weekday programmes and through the lives of individual Christians.

ER - I agree. Churches should take quotes, such as this, as a personal challenge to become more relevant.

i don't know about you guys but ever since I've gone to LC I've noticed that time goes really fast. I never find myself looking at my watch. I'm sure it's because Craig is so captivating and his message is always fitting in my life no matter what the topic.
