The Lord’s Day?

I find myself with a growing burden over what takes place in Christians’ lives on Sunday these days. I grew up when Sunday was truly the Lord’s Day. In some ways you didn’t have a choice; there was nothing else to do. Stores were closed all day with the very few exceptions of a couple […]
