Why not church on Wednesday?

LEAGUE CITY — It’s not always been easy to get to church on the first day of the week. When the Christian church was founded, many early converts served as slaves in the Roman Empire. Their freedom to travel to services was, shall we say, somewhat restricted.

Sundays back then also weren’t set aside for either church (or NFL football.) In rural America, there often weren’t enough circuit riding preachers to fill every pulpit every Sunday, so the mostly rural, farming population sometimes had to do without formal Sunday services. And today, a subset of hardworking folk, largely in the food and hospitality industry, find that they must work every weekend in order to make ends meet.
