#10  You’re running out of clean clothes and the choir robes save on laundry.
#9  You’ve just been selected for jury duty and want to get used to sitting with a group of people.
#8  Your church is so full you want to ensure that you always have a seat.
#7  The collection plate is never passed to the choir.
#6  There’s a clock at the back of the sanctuary and you want to be the first to know when it’s 12:00.
#5  The preacher is new and you want to be close by in case he says something heretical.
#4  For years you’ve wanted to know who sits in the back pews but were always afraid to turn around.
#3  You’ve been known to nod off during the service and don’t want the pastor to catch you.
#2  The chairs in the choir are the most comfortable in the sanctuary.
#1  Your favorite move is Sister Act!

Baptists, too. Those big wooden crosses in front of Baptist church, they don't symblize Jesus, they are for the Preachers who haven't let them out by 12:05 Grin

Tibby,

I suspect those crosses could symbolize more than one thing.  If I were a Baptist preacher… the last thing I would want is the congregation pulling out the nails and hammer…lol… Grin Grin

Sincere Heart,

Maybe a generous soul will donate the funds necessary to purchase new robes…lol!  Do you need a tax write off?  Does ANYONE need a tax write off?   Wink

So would it be safe to say that you sing back up...  ;Dthat is back up support from the comfort of the congregational church pews?  Singing so lo... oops... that is so low that no one can hear you? Wink

Comfort? ROFL! Them hard pews AIN'T comfy!  Wink But I don't sing so low! I sing joyfully - my noise IS joyful!  Grin


Bet the rest of the congregation would be willing to take up a love offering to get me to sing way low, though!   Lips Sealed

Sincereheart,

…lol… Cheesy

Amen to the uncomfortable pews.  I think God inspired a few men to build these.  Knowing, as He does, that too much comfort would lend itself to sleep, which still happens on occasion even setting in the harder/less padded pews.  I have heard of collections being taken up for missions, building funds, families going through crises… but never to quite a fellow Church member… You may be on to something though.  It could be a good way to earn some extra cash on the side…lol

I joined my school choir purely and simply because, at Christmas, we got to sit in the choir stalls at church. This had two advantages:

1) We did not have to listen to the interminably long and boring sermon.
2) We could talk, and no one could hear us Grin

It was a coveted duty, the choir.

And God will say:
Depart from me I never knew you!
I never knew you!
Never.
 

Man disavows, and Deity disowns me:
Hell might afford my miseries a shelter;
Therefore Hell keeps her ever-hungry mouths all
Bolted against me.
