The ideal time for worship is…

Pastor Matthew Best

Or no time.

Or I haven’t got the slightest idea.

Here’s what I do know. That maybe Sunday morning is ideal, and maybe it’s not. Maybe 8am is great for your congregation and maybe it’s terrible. The same could be said for 11am. Or 9:30am or any other time for that matter. Or maybe 5pm on Saturday. Or 5pm on Sunday. Or 5pm on Wednesday. I don’t know.

I say a post on Facebook by Mark Tidsworth that got me thinking about this. Here’s what he wrote:
