In large swaths of the world, people choose to spend their weekends away from the local church in exchange for outdoor sports and recreation. Some do so as a parent of a child on a sports team, a traveling team; some find nature more alluring than spending time in a crowded building on a Sunday morning; while other view recreation their weekends to be spent doing something that brings them joy - never realizing they're missing out on eternal joy.
