Introduction

With so much controversy surrounding the day that people should go to church to worship God we should probably forget about going at all and stay at home on Saturday and Sunday. Discuss your views. You can be anywhere to pray and worship God, there is no one special place that you should go to do so. If he wanted us to go and pray at a specific place when he created us and everything else he would have built a church too.
