To Cancel Church -- to Not Cancel Church?

In 1984, as a Seminary student on Christmas break, our pastor, Rev. Randy, went to church on Sunday morning to find the pastor waiving people away.  Church had been cancelled.  Those who paid attention to the radio and television knew about it.  Those who braved the elements to join with others were disappointed, to say the least.  "At that point," he reports, "I decided to never cancel church because of weather.  There will always be someone who doesn't get the message and show up!"
If you think the roads are too bad and church should be cancelled, stay home.  But Rev. Randy will walk to church and make sure the doors are open even for those foolish enough to drive on the worst of roads.  (In fact, on Christmas Eve, 2009, there were only 10 people at the late service -- and one of them took Rev. Randy home so he wouldn't have to walk!)
