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


Ah,...I had read somewhere that one was Friday, one was Saturday, and one was Sunday...then I had heard something different from someone, so there's a bit of confusion it would seem with my sources....maybe that's part of why those 3 views don't get along?....but yeah long made short it's because of the weekend

I remember the goal was having a regular sermon once a week posted no earlier than Friday or later than Sunday. It was the weekend that was in mind.

In some places the start of the week is monday, not sunday... And Sunday counts as "weekend"...

I don't think it matters for the sermons, as long as they're every 7 days...


For the live services sunday doesn't seem such a good idea as totjo sundays are usually quiet.

I believe the general idea was that people are more likely to be free on Sundays as that's the most accepted "day off" from work.

As Br.John mentioned, sermons can be issued at any point during the weekend. But services are usually held on Sunday because people are less likely to have work commitments. I know I wouldn't usually be able to attend on any other day.

There's a very low turnout. knightings in the middle of the week however have proven quite popular.

Islam is Friday, Judaism is Saturday, and Christianity is Sunday, trust me i had to attend services all three days to make my family happy. My father's side is Islamic, my mother's side is both Jewish and Christian. I had a wonderful childhood no?

At least it's an "active" childhood with exposure to multiple lines of thought. That can't be totally bad? But, December must be a mess!

Not really, i feel its the one time they all actually got along, of course, in the end i never decided on practicing either of the three religions, so this December was rather..."cold" on my end :p
