Why I’m Wearing Pajamas To Church

While scanning the Twitter posts this morning, I came across this blog by a “pastor” that I thought was eye-opening: http://ht.ly/31NnY

I pray that the Lord’s church doesn’t start following this latest “trend.”

A Question About The Sunday Evening Assembly

There have been several churches of Christ here in the El Paso area who have discontinued their Sunday evening assembly. I’m wondering if this is a trend among churches of Christ nation-wide, or is this mindset confined to just our area? Will appreciate your input.

The Twitter Fad Is Over

This is the latest article regarding the social network called “Twitter”:

The article brings out the fact that only those who are die hard Twitter users remain faithful in using the service.

A quote from the article:

“The trend-followers, Oprah fans, curious tire kickers and others have gotten bored or frustrated and wandered away. Meanwhile, the kinds of people who can take advantage of Twitter are really getting into it and getting more out of it.”

Personally, I like the quick and concise communication concept of Twitter. You can’t “beat-around-the-bush” on Twitter. You’ve got to get what you want said in as few words as possible – not like the never ending talk shows on T.V.

It’s a very quick and practical way of promoting your congregation’s web site, a personal blog, or any other medium of spreading the gospel of Christ. We need to take advantage of every opportunity and means we have at our disposal in promoting the saving gospel of Christ – Twitter is one of those means.

The specific trend that I’ve seen over …

The specific trend that I’ve seen over the past 40 years, is the desire for the church to be like the denominations round about them (cf. 1 Samuel 8:5; 1 Samuel 8:19-20). The mindset of present-day people hasn’t changed much in 3,000 years.

Bro. Wayne Jackson made some other significant observations regarding trends and the great needs of the church, in an article written by Bro. Steve Lloyd in 2002, as he interviewed Bro. Jackson:
