No Excuse Sunday

This poem has made the rounds of the Internet, and even into books.  We all know someone who has an excuse, or rather a reason, for not going to Church on Sunday.  While appreciating the humor behind this poem, let's pray for those who aren't in Church this week...

To make it possible for everyone to attend church next Sunday,
we are going to have a special "No Excuse Sunday".

Cots will be placed in the foyer for those who say,
"Sunday is my only day to sleep in."

There will be a special section with lounge chairs
who feel that our pews are too hard.

Eye drops will be available for those with tired eyes
from watching T.V. late Saturday night.

We will have steel helmets for those who say
" The roof would cave in if I ever came to church."

Blankets will be furnished
for those who think the church is too cold
and fans for those who say it is too hot.

Score cards will be available
for those who wish to list the hypocrites present.

Relatives and friends will be in attendance
for those who can't go to church and cook dinner, too.

We will distribute "Stamp Out Stewardship" buttons
for those who feel that church is always asking for money.

One section will be devoted to trees and grass
 for those who like to seek God in nature.

Doctors and nurses will be in attendance
for those who plan to be sick on Sunday.

The sanctuary will be decorated
with both Christmas poinsettias and Easter lilies
for those who never have seen the church without them.

We will provide hearing aids
for those who can't hear the preacher
and cotton for those who say he is to loud.
