Don't get me wrong.

I just wanted to know why, I don't want to change it!

I'll perhaps wait to see if anyone (perhaps older members) have anything to add, and just for Connor to know...

These are pretty much the same thing, are they not? Are you accusing me of making excuses too? ;)

We're just offering that idea as a possible idea of something that may well have influenced the decision to have them on Sundays.

Therefore we are offering possible 'reasons', not 'excuses' :)

No, I'm not saying you are giving excuses, just referencing to yourself, and saying you are guessing councilor.;-)

I'm just waiting for Gm Mark or Br.John or another old member.... If there is a problem, I can ask via PM. :-)

Explain how not having anything to do on a Sunday means it's an excuse...

Based on definition I gave on excuse and reason, it came after decision is made.

I think you were meaning something more along the lines of 'speculation'...

'Excuse' implies that we're trying to justify a bad thing...

Connor, I'm sure you're aware that English is not MCSH's first language :)

lol, not to derail...

But, I'm gonna for a second....;)

'Excuse' comes after decision is made, while 'Reason' comes before.


This is opinion and perspective...

As is "revenge or justice"....

Its "my reason", whether I explain it to you before or after....

If you agree with the answer, it is a valid reason (excuse can be used here as well, yes?)...

If you don't, its a poor excuse (reason can be used here as well, right)....

Aren't words fun?

Ah waiting for one of the older members...jestor is one...as am I...

Technically we can have/ submit a sermon any day of the week...we've had Thursday sermons in the past....one of the main reasons it's on Sunday is because most of the world is one of the big 3 religions(christian,jewish,islam) and those three usually hold a Sunday service, so most people don't work on Sunday and us having the sermon on Sunday enables more members to make it since they usually have the day off from their normal jobs any way...

Then I guess the only reason is that day being weekend. Thanks for your answers.

Just one note Ryujin:
The only world- known religion that do sermon on Sunday is Christianity. Both Islam and Jewish have it on Friday.
