Did daylight savings affect your church?

Remarkably, today's services weren't significantly affected by the "spring" forward on our clocks. In fact, in the service I work with most directly, we had our second strongest attendance number from the last 6 months. I guess that's more a sign of health in the ministry and improvements in our follow-up efforts with newer folks.

Still, we did have a couple of funny tales today. First, our main bulletin-distributor didn't show up on time, so we had someone fill in for her. I should have sent her a text message yesterday to remind her -- but I forgot to do that! Second, after checking on another building, I was walking back toward our sanctuary just before noon -- or 11AM, if you forgot to move your clocks ahead, as was the case for the family I saw entering. They were surprised at how full the parking lot was -- until I asked if they had forgotten to change their clocks.

I don't know if it did or not, but it used to quite frequently.

When you talked about texting someone it reminded me of your addiction. I have a betting pool on the 3 Idol finalist. I texted for my 3 picks so much on Wednesday night that I crashed my phone. It wasn't used to the 400 text in 1 hour for me \
