Long Worship Services

Toby Sumpter, a friend and my former pastor, has a great post about lengthy services that I really enjoyed. A good summation is that we pay money to go to a movie and sit through 2 hours of garbage but we won't enjoy 2 hours in the worship of God?

He also has a great quote from Donald Van Dyken about how the evangelism of our children is like farming. We know God is the one who saves just as we know he is the only one who can make plants grow, but the Holy Spirit has bound himself to us as a means. So we don't just sit back and watch the crops grow. We plant, water, weed, fertilize (organically ,of course=), and take careful care of our crops.
