Not convinced, are you? Most of you won't be. The overwhelming majority of folks won't bother. Because most of you have things that you rate as more important, as more urgent. Places to go. Appointments. Kids filling bathrooms 3 inches deep with water. I completely understand. And I'm certainly not here to nag, or to be the village scold. I'm just some fool dad blogger, after all.
But not bothering... not taking the time to know, truly, for yourself alone, as a layperson (i.e. non-'clergy'), is why we're losing the knowledge war in churches today, and losing it badly.
And that's the 'trick,' isn't it?
(UPDATE: I've added the Q&A, which comments on another important question or two.)
