Couple of nice posts there are there.... As to service....I'm never there, I know Thomas always cringes when I say I'm always with the kids. But we get ours coming back from college singing praises of the lessons learned in Sunday School, and how they helped them through issues in relationships and the growing up that happens in college. They come back to tell our youth the value of our principles and disscussion.... I've been to church almost every week for the past 14 years, but I'll bet haven't been in service 30 times. I do get the tape/cd and do enjoy the music. When you have music with a message and a beat it does something for me, sets the mood, and also provides another tool, something else to hold on to when needed.
