Holding Hands in Church

Listen up. This is important.

Hold hands with your spouse in church.

Hold hands walking in, hold hands during the praise and worship, hold hands during the sermon.

Hold hands walking out.


Because we're human, and every day, our faith varies. Sometimes it's great, sometimes we wonder if this is all a sham. We may not admit it to ourselves,and we'd probably never admit a serious loss of faith to our spouse (well, I wouldn't), but for most people, at one time or another...it's there.

Like an infection, the kind that left untreated can turn into gangrene.

And how did Jesus heal?

With touch.

Let your strength flow into your weaker spouse, or use touch to take from his strength, to build yourself up. They say that church isn't a palace for saints, but a hospital for sinners...and for the weak of faith.

We're all sinners, and we're all sometimes weak.

Take the hand that's closest to you.

Heal, and be healed.

(Yes, I realize that if you have children there are times you need to keep them contained, but that's what duct tape's for...kidding. Sometimes you've got to hold your kids, but when you don't, your first duty, Scripturally, is to your spouse.)
