I noticed in the paper that a Sunday market in Summerland has been approved by council.
As one councillor has said, it will give Summerlanders an opportunity to go someplace on Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Whatever happened to the notion that 10 or 11 a.m. on Sunday was the time to attend a church service?
There are a number of church services every Sunday morning in Summerland and I’m sure they would all welcome many more attendees.
Have we come so far from our roots as a Christian country that our only options for Sunday mornings are attending markets?
If we must market on Sunday, let it be Sunday afternoon. What are we teaching our young people when the only thing we offer on Sunday is a market, and certainly not a service of worship.
If we have to market something on Sunday, let it be Christianity.
