still do lots of things during long church services. The advent of the smart phone for starters LOL. I’ve always been a multi-tasker and I can listen to the service and catch up on e-mail 🙂
Church generally goes from 11am to 2pm depending on the Sunday. During football season, when the Falcons are in town, I miss church. Or I could opt to go to the early morning service at 7:30 and be back home by 9am but I miss it all. Sunday I do try to sleep longer so I don’t routinely go to early morning service although I”m guaranteed to be out at a certain time.
I go to the later and longer service because my friends go to that longer service and we find plenty besides the minister, occupy our interests.
I seem to stay in church though… if it isn’t Sunday service, I have a funeral. I didn’t make service today, but I have a funeral tomorrow…
