Two Minute Answers

Whenever someone approaches me on Sunday morning and asks me a question, I feel like I have two minutes to answer. There is always something about to start or someone else waiting to talk. Time is so limited on Sunday morning, and I sense the urgency of the moment.

It is not that a person’s issues are unimportant to me. In fact, it is quite the opposite. I want to give them the fullest, thought-through ideas when someone asks a question. Yet, time is limited. So I give everyone my short answer and pray for the best.

I assume I am not the only person who struggles with this in the Church. Teachers, worship leaders, and volunteers all find it challenging to handle significant issues in a short amount of time. In addition, the setting on Sunday morning is not entirely conducive to meeting complex needs.

You are not alone if you have been part of a Church community and felt like the people only give simple answers to complicated questions. We know you have real needs and problems and want to help you, but we need more time to make it happen. That is why small groups, Sunday school classes, fellowship time, and connection outside of Sunday morning are so vital to the growth of a believer. Most questions in life require more than two minutes answers, and if you give a Christian more time to talk, we will gladly give you the response you desire.
