What’s special about Sunday?

I enjoy reading the Reformation 21 blog, but had fallen behind on reading the posts there. Last Sunday, one of my favorite authors at that site, Rev. Richard Phillips, posted a great short article on what it means to keep the Lord’s Day holy. I hope you find it as helpful and refreshing as I did. 🙂

    Our church doesn’t have an evening service but we have hymn singing practice time, Sunday School, a pretty long service and then every week a potluck meal afterwards. We can easily be there for 6 hours on a Sunday. The commitment of time has totally changed the focus on our week. We have a lot more to get ready, like the meal and have to plan for the day a lot more and so it is almost like the whole week is a sort of preperation for Sunday, rather than it just abbreviating the week like it did at our old church. It makes much more of our life revolve around church life. We also sign when we become members a statement that we will not buy or sell on the Lord’s day. That also puts more thought into the day because we can’t just run to the store if we run out of something. It’s interesting how these things change the perspective of the week without our doing it consciously.
