pews and parking lots

I usually go to the early service on Sundays.

This tends to be the less populated service.  I don’t go because I like getting up early — ask anyone who knows me and they’ll tell you that I’m not a morning person at all.  Truthfully — I go because it’s the less populated service.  Which means I can sit close to the front [and since I’m short, this is important.] … and I can sit in a row with just a few other people instead of sitting in a pew that I’m being squished out of.

[I think there is a direct correlation between this preference and how I feel about driving around the parking lot looking for a spot — just pick one that’s farther and away from the other cars and you’re good]

I realize this might make me look like a bad person.  In worship, shouldn’t I want to sit around others and share in the experience with them?  Perhaps.

Build community?

Have fellowship?

Could be…

I need my space with God.

So, I apologize in advance if you’re ever around me and I don’t rush to sit next to you on Sunday morning.  It isn’t personal … it’s just personal for me.

Seems I’m not really alone either:

Very early the next morning, Jesus got up and went to a place where he could be alone and pray.  [Mark 1:35]

Where is your space?
