Looking For A New Excuse

Very droll, Fish Catcher Jim.
Thank you for that.

But it does make me wonder how the word "Service" comes so naturally as to be understood for what takes place when we enter into communal prayer, singing praises, and listening to the teaching and explaining of the Word.
Service ? How does our meeting together come to have that name ?

A car will last longer and give better service if the owner takes the car in for regular servicing by a mechanic. Church is where the ministers and congregation concentrate on spiritual needs and prepare each other for serving our Lord in the wider community.
