(CBS) There is a place for worship, and a place for football. On Super Bowl Sunday, the Broadfording Brethren Bible Church is both. For the third consecutive year, the Rev. R. William Wyand will replace his pulpit with a big-screen TV and invite people to watch the game from the padded pews. A potluck buffet opens when the pre-game service ends...

Sure sounds like a good deal big screen tv and food.

Oh god! Football and church! What an insufferable fate that would be!

My church let me off this past football sunday, and I got to watch the whole super bowl for the first time in 24 years, and enjoyed every minute of it, and I do not think God was mad at all, in fact, I am sure He was watching...but I do not think He cared who won.

Not bloody likely!

I like to drink beer, and will say so to my pastor if necessary, but I'd feel weird doong it *IN* church.

Well, I don't go to church or anything, but if I did I'm sure I'd get a kick out of this (argh, no pun intended). After all, many churches also function as social gathering places, so why not?
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/12/03 - 2:01:49 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't go to church so no.
19 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 2/12/03 - 2:23:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
oh cool! i like this idea!

Thought about this before... I say that it ain't right to use the church for such a secular event like that, especially if it's more prone to involve drinking... I'm not sure whether it's alright to hold the event in church, if another room is used, not the sanctuary... I'd feel more comfortable, though, if we actually get to go to the pastor or reverend's home to chill.

I would love to do this although I am not a big fan of american football or church, what a fantastic cultural experience. I would be mindful of whatever conventions were normal, not get pissed and make a big plate of food.

I wouldn't watch it from anywhere.
