    Do those baby Bangs come in adult sizes? Should I look into wearing one so people will coo over me at church rather than be repelled by my bald dome?

    what trend do I dislike and want to see leave the church?
    I dislike the whole, “turn to your neighbor and say…” it seems so robotic and fake. If my neighbor didn’t hear it the first time when the pastor said it and if God didn’t make it resonate with my neighbor, me repeating it isn’t going to make a difference. Maybe there is a pastor who can pull this sermon trick off well, but it has never rung true with me.
