It was January 29, 1995.
It was MY Sunday.

I walked into church that morning, as an annoying ADHD 8 year old boy, ready to get my candy fix on as I entered into the 3rd grade classroom at my parents church in Alpharetta, GA. The room had white brick walls, I remember that for some reason and windows on the left side. After my parents dropped me off, my Sunday School Teacher, Mr. Pomeroi (I think that’s how you spell his name), announced that all the third grade classes were going to merge because we were going to watch a video.

He rolled in one of those old school tube TVs on a black media card. It was likely that he popped in the VHS and hit the play button. As the video played, a series of football players, coaches and former commentators were talking about their faith in Jesus Christ. At the end of the video, our teacher asked if there was anyone who wanted to invite Jesus into their heart?
And I responded with “YES!”

It was January 29, 1995.
It was MY Sunday.

You see, it’s never just another Sunday, regardless of how normal it may seem. This thing we do, planning, preparing and producing worship environments is a matter of eternal significance. Mr. Pomeroi knew that Sunday wasn’t going to be just another Sunday, but he was praying it would be full of significance.

It’s never just another Sunday,
because it’s probably someone’s Sunday

It’s never just another Sunday, because it’s probably someone’s Sunday. And when we have that sort of perspective, it changes the way we approach our weekend services. WE don’t just sing songs to sing songs, but we sing songs as declarations to our King of Kings. We don’t just “transition” between elements, but we take people on a journey so they know they’re cared and loved over. It’s never just another Sunday.

You and I have the opportunity to craft atmosphere’s that will invite people into the most glorious story they’ve ever been invited into… and we write it off as just another Sunday that we have to serve. Lets allow our perspective to shift from button pusher to moment maker, and begin to realize that it’s someone’s Sunday this week. Whenever it’s someone’s Sunday, eternity is in the balance, and their lives will likely be forever changed by the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ!

Lets allow our perspective to shift from button pusher to moment maker.
