A few weeks ago I heard a statement about the "sanctuary" (in a church building) being God's house and how we need to show proper respect when in it.
I always get my back up when I hear that because I don't see what makes the sanctuary any more holy or set apart than say, my office.
They both have sound systems, uncomfortable chairs, Bibles, musical instruments, unused hymnals, places to store books, and occasionally even people and a slightly funky odor.
How do you change this mentality?
Or maybe a better question is can you change this mentality?
