Trout Lake after church

Posted by seanho on Sun 29 April 2007

*sigh*, so tired... today was a rather long day at church, with a lengthy (though interesting) congregational meeting all afternoon. But why is it that church lately so often drains, stresses, and depresses me instead of energizing? A walk around this nearby lake in the springtime sun, some time to think and pray, helps me to recover....

My mom often says, "Christians should be joyful!" -- not necessarily giddy-happy, but joyful in the Lord. The speaker last week mentioned how restaurant workers really do notice the behaviour of Christians when they go out for lunch after church -- and how so many are sullen, complaintative, uncommunicative with their kids, condescending to waitstaff -- and stingy tippers. It's true!
