Churches and the Chronically Ill
Churches could do one simple thing to help "the least of these" who are chronically ill. Hold evening services on Sunday. Many chronically ill folks just cannot do things earlier in the day. However, they can work up to an evening event. Yet, so few churches have this option. Moreover, many of us who are not chronically ill are not "morning people" and prefer services later in the day. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that the early Christians met in the morning. We are not told when they met nor are we commanded to meet in the morning.
