A Meeting of the Board


We say that God isn’t impressed with large numbers and man shouldn’t be depressed with small ones. And that’s true. But it’s a fact that a full sanctuary leaves a positive impact on the people in the pew as well as on the pastor in the pulpit. All of which says that when we are absent without good reason, everyone stands to lose.

And let us consider how to provoke one another to love and good deeds, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day approaching. ~ Hebrew 10:24-25

An item from a church newsletter makes this point in a unique way. It’s entitled, Calling a Meeting of the Board: “The board of absentees will meet each time a service of the church is in session. They will discuss various ways of keeping attendance as low as possible. They will endeavor to see that there is no enthusiasm, and help to decrease the offerings. The board will also seek to weaken the pastor’s influence, and plan various ways to hinder any revival efforts and all visitation programs in or by the church. The board of absentees is composed of the following members: Mr. I.M. Unconcerned, Mrs. O.U. Hypocrite, Mr. and Mrs. U.R. Lazy, Mrs. C. Others, and Mr. I.M. Disgruntled, chairman.”
