Examin Sunday June 19 July 2015

The summer is the time when many like to plan their holidays, taking a break from work and home. Most put a quite an amount of planning into it, deciding on the right destination, how they will travel there, where to stay, and what to do and see while there. 

What of planning as to where they will worship on the Sundays they are away? 

Do they take advantage of the internet to check out in advance what churches are nearby and the times worship will take place? Do they assume that someone in the hotel or resort or some local person living nearby will be able to tell them? Or do they give it no thought at all, treating their vacation as a holiday from God as well as all the mundane things of their lives? 

There is, of course, no such thing as a holiday from God. If there happens to be no church within a reasonable distance of where you are holidaying, then so be it – keep the day holy in some other way. But if there is, then make it your business to go, giving especial thanks to God for this time he has granted you of rest and relaxation.
