Creatures of Habit

I understand that people are creatures of habit.  The Sunday when we got a heavy snowfall and it was so cold outside we went ahead and had morning worship.  There were 31 brave souls who ventured out and came to church.  I noticed that each individual sat in their traditional spot even though there was plenty of room closer to the front. 

On any given Sunday during coffee fellowship people sit at the same table with the same friends for the most part.  I am sure they would welcome anyone who would sit with them but they are not likely to move to a table and sit with someone else.

When you think you have heard it all you learn something new.  Today I heard that in the men's restroom they favor the stall to the left.  For the past two weeks all the men use the same toilet.  You might wonder how I know this.  The custodian shared that he has not had to put the blue cleaning solution in the other toilet because it has not been used or flushed away.  Now this is not a big deal except the one the men is using is the one that leaks.  We have not been able to get that toilet fixed, so if you stop to think about it, try using the stall on the right.  Who knows, maybe you will like it.

And don't be afraid to mix things up in the sanctuary or dining hall for it is a great way to get to know other people in the church.  Have a great day.
