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?
