Your ears close up when you look at something else?
But to answer your question specific to me… he’s my “dad”, most of the time I’ve typed up his sermon during the week so I already know what he’s going to say, I’ve read the scripture before hand, double checking that I have spelled everything correctly, quoted it as written, prepared the slides for the viewing of the congregation etc. I sing in the choir etc. So maybe you misinterpret what I’m capable of doing 🙂
Then you have to understand that I’m also in church services several times a week… its my business to be in church services, so I’m not being disrespectful, in my mind or purpose.
