Not long ago, many Christians talked about keeping Sunday special. Today s society not to mention today s church seems increasingly convinced that such a concern is irrelevant. In many places people stay away from churches generally. Congregations dwindle. The vast majority of both converted and unconverted men and women appear to approach Sundays with a take it or leave it attitude. We might ask ourselves, Why bother with Sundays? Are there not other, perhaps better, ways of spending our time and expending our energies in the service of God? Why not abandon Sunday worship and go where and when we will find the people? Why not arrange our churches in a way that conforms to and perhaps appeals to the patterns of activity and behaviour we see in our culture and society?
