When it comes to competing with the mass media, the church tends to lose. On Christmas Eve this year the Minnesota Vikings will face the Green Bay Packers in a 2:00 p.m. game, prompting conflicts with 4:00 p.m. Christmas Eve church services.
All the excitement is understandable, but I’m surprised no one has come up with a workable solution. How about rescheduling your church service so families can catch the game? How about throwing a party to watch the game and having a Christmas Eve service either before or after?
Why is it we have to whine about the NFL being so rude to fans? Why can’t we make the best of it and hope next time the NFL is a little more considerate?
