“Sunday night service was not invented (as church folklore has it) so that people could return at dark to see the newly invented oil lamps. (Unless that was why Eutychus came to hear Paul that night?) Oil lamps would not provide enough momentum to get this institution into the next decade, let alone down to us today. So, if it wasn’t the oil lamps, then what caused all this momentum?“
This issue is interesting to me, because my church is one of just a few in our county that have an evening service on Sunday. I would appreciate your comments as to how you “do” Sunday worship, either a.m. or p.m.
