Have me excused!

Bible Scripture TruthDear Preacher,

I know that worship is important, but I think a fellow has the right to miss now and then. The following is a list of reasons for which I think I should be excused:

• 1 Christmas – It’s only once a
year.
• 1 New Years – I need to start off rested.
• 1 July Fourth – National Holiday.
• 1 Labor Day – the Bible commands a day of rest.
• 1 Memorial Day – State holiday.
• 1 school closing – heading to the beach
• 1 school starting – last chance for summer.
• 2 family reunions – one for me, one for the wife.
• 5 out of town games – we support our local team.
• 4 tournaments – one for each sport.
• 1 Anniversary – second honeymoon.
• 5 sickness – one for each family member.
• 3 business trips – have to make a living.
• 3 vacation – 2 week, three weekends.
• 5 bad weather – too hot, cold, ice, snow rain, fog.
• 4 Dallas Cowboys games.
• 2 unexpected company – can’t leave them alone.
• 2 alarm clock failures – not my fault.
• 2 time changes – never can keep them straight.
• 3 house and car repairs – have to do it when I’m off.
• 1 TV special – continuing education.

Total 50

So I have two Sunday’s free per year. I’ll see you Easter and the third Sunday in September unless I am providentially hindered.

If you are traveling in Cincinnati Ohio, here is the schedule for our worship services.
