The Joys of Not Going to Church
This Sunday was the first week for a while we didn’t go to church. Why? The church we have chosen to go to has a children’s service most weeks. This is where the kids disappear for some dreadful indoctrination I daren’t think too much about – although occasionally they get sweets. The up-side is that we parents can “enjoy” a bit of time without them squirming and being noisy during the service. As the youngest child is particularly prone of giving her opinions (e.g. “this is boring”, “I wan’t to go home”, etc) we decided not to go.
Oh, the joy of it! No rushing to get out of the house. Children’s homework was done on time. School clothes were got ready. Lunch-boxes were prepared. And all by lunchtime!
Was this what it was like before we decided we needed to get our children into a Faith School?
