I listened to an interesting conversation yesterday about parishioners who object to being asked to do things for the church, whether it is bake cookies for a children's event or something else.
It seemed like a non-issue to me because the parishioner can always so "NO", if they don't want to help out. Now, granted this is above and beyond their regular tithes, but it seemed a little silly to get upset about being asked to bake cookies.
Perhaps, you can give me some insight on this phenomenon!!
