“I’m Not Going to Church!” Chapter 3.3

Posted: February 1, 2013 in Uncategorized

“The saying of no is the first step in discovering how to say yes.” (p 28)

This was to be the start of another post….but I worked 39 hours in the last three days. And my wife who has been gone all week returns home anytime. I will give this week’s Thursday post on Friday.

Saying yes tomorrow means saying no right now!

Meanwhile, here is a great set of questions from Peterson’s chapter.

Why do you go to church?

What does it mean to you?

What does the actual act of worship mean to you personally?

How is it important in your life?

(Have you ever talked to your kid about it?)

And why do you want your kid to go to church even when he or she doesn’t feel like it?

(This post is inspired by chapter 3 of Like Dew Your Youth: Growing Up With Your Teenager by Eugene Peterson. Get a copy of this great little book and check back each Thursday for the next 9 weeks to become part of the discussion.
