This is a no judgment zone as God is the only one who can judge. However, curiosity struck me as I surveyed the habits of my young adult peers when it comes to their Sunday activities. The promotions of Sunday brunch is especially popular here in Atlanta almost to the point in which bottomless mimosa brunches have been ingrained within our culture.
It's safe to say Atlanta's brunch culture has local modern millennials in a chokehold. The popularity of the common brunch have grown to epic proportions as Atlanta locals make it their mission to attend them "religiously". This sparked a question in my mind regarding the paradox that seems to live between classic Sunday service and the modern revelry of Sunday brunch.
As alway this is a no judgement zone but I find it interesting whether or not those of devout faith have ever found themselves sitting at a table at brunch instead of sitting in the pews. I took to twitter and posed this intriguing question to our followers, but we'd love to get your vote on the matter so check out the tweet below. Also take a look at some humorous tweets about this topic below!

We are all free to make our own decisions we hope readers are able to make the decision to more often than not find themselves receiving the word in some manner every Sunday. Whether that be physically at church, virtually streaming mass, even watching prerecorded services, or even self study or group study receiving His word should be the main attraction on the day he ordained for rest. God's word shouldn't feel like a forced chore so find the method that feels the authentic for you and your own personal connection to God.
Furthermore, post service brunch has been around for a long time. There's nothing wrong with sharing a meal with those closest to us. But like most things, brunch festivities are better in moderation. Sections and bottle service every Sunday after church may of may not be be overdoing. However, with God in mind, discretion is key to determining a proper balance between celebration of God and celebration of life.
What are your thoughts on this topic? Have you ever found yourself at brunch instead of service or have you found a balance between doing the "work" versus the play? Comment down below, we'd love to hear from you!
