Sunday, Go-to-Meeting

Family life was slower paced in the 1940’s, 50’s and 60’s.

Most women were contented to be housewives; they stayed at home to care for their children and run the household. Second family cars were rare and many women didn't even have a drivers license.

During the week, men of America worked in varied occupations in the towns and cities or from can-to-can’t on the family farm.

Children attended much smaller schools and looked forward to Saturday play. Teenagers crammed for exams; on Friday and Saturday nights they crammed into jalopies for rides to ball games and sock hops.

Come Sunday, it was Sunday go-to-meeting.

“For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God
Than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
The Lord will give grace and glory;
No good thing will He withhold
From those who walk uprightly.

O Lord of hosts,
Blessed is the man who trusts in You (Psalm 84:10-12 NKJV)!

Sunday go-to-meeting…

“… not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching (Hebrews 10:25 NKJV).”

I hope to see you there!
