Thank you ,it feels great to be here ,,,,even if it is just for a few minutes. I do understand what you are saying & that may not be such a bad idea,,,,,good for those that attend Sunday School but not everyone does anyway
But here is another thing to consider.......when we attend service on Sunday I know we all go with the hopes of hearing a Rhema Word,right?Well,on so many occasions, when this happens (as I have found to be true in my experiences at my church)that is really not what the Preacher was fully prepared for & he receives the Word with the rest of us-lol Glory to God!
So many times our Pastor had the sermon all prepared and then God has something else in mind and the sermon goes in a completely different direction.......Gods Word ,after all ,is "the Living Word".....
There are so many different churches & they all have their own 'order' in which they have Sunday Service,they even hand out 'programs" but basically when the Sermon is given it is the reading of Gods Word followed by a commentary,,,,,,,,which is an explanation ,I have to agree with Reformed,that if the congregation is having difficulties understanding what was "preached" I do not think the preacher did a very good job?
