Attend church for 52 weeks in a row

March 12, 2007 — 3 Comments

Blogger Kyle Pott at Lifehack.org has put together a list of ways to help you overcome the urge to sleep in on Sunday mornings and attend church every week for a year.

I think it’s safe to say that many people have the desire to attend church more consistently and improve their spiritual life. On this date last year, I was not a member of a church and I rarely attended any church services. On February 26, 2006 I set a personal goal for myself to attend church for an entire year without missing a single week. This coming Sunday, will make it 52 weeks in a row that I attended church without skipping even once. I will give you tips on how to find a church, and how I to find the motivation to attend every week for an entire year.

His list suggests you:

  • Keep in mind that your church won’t be perfect
  • Get to know the members
    Get involved with the church
  • Substitute Saturday night for Friday night
  • Promise someone
  • Go with a friend or loved one
  • Rationalize the time

What have you done to make sure you’re in church every week? Or do you even see a need?

    I enjoy church.

    As Wilfred Brimley likes to say, “It’s the right thing to do.”

  2. In the end, people will do what works for them. Some of us have been very involved members of churches for a period of years, but have chosen to retire from the backstabbing, phoniness, etc.. The ritual of the mass can be beautiful, so some of us choose to visit various places periodically, but have let membership go. God is bigger than all of this anyway. Peace to all.
