JANUARY: I hereby resolve to start to church this year. But I’ll wait until February. Gotta get over the holidays. They take a lot out of a fellow.
FEBRUARY: Weather is terrible. I’ll start when it gets a bit warmer. My blood is too thin this time of year.
MARCH: Lots of sickness just now. Got to keep away from those bugs.
APRIL: Easter… big crowds… they won’t miss me.
MAY: I’ve been holed up all winter and now that the weather is getting pretty it’s time to hold reunions.
JUNE: I’ll wait until the baby is older. How on earth do some folks take their babies when they are just a few weeks old–and then never miss Sunday worship.
JULY: Boy! The heat is terrific! That air conditioning in the church might give me chill, and anyway we’ve got that cabin boat for Sundays.
AUGUST: Preacher’s on vacation. He’ll never know if I miss. Never like those guest preachers anyhow, but when the preacher gets back…
SEPTEMBER: School’s started. Vacation threw me behind in my work. Got to make one last visit to my relatives before the snow flies.
OCTOBER: Leaves are beautiful this time of year… I can worship God outdoors anyhow… kids will be cooped up all winter… so…
NOVEMBER: Getting colder… can’t stand warm church buildings with a lot of people in them. I’ll start back to church when it gets warmer.
DECEMBER: Christmas! It belongs to kids. I don’t have time now for the church; roads are dangerous too… anyway, next month is January. I’ll resolve now to start going to church next year.
