Stop with the CEO/ChrEasters/Palms and Ashes

It is a "joke" among the faithful attendees of Christian houses of worship to give a name to those who come to worship a few times a year. 

CEO - Christmas, Easter and one other time

ChrEasters - Christmas and Easter 

Palms and Ashes - Palms Sunday and Ash Wednesday (generally found in the Catholic tradition)

We really need to stop this. 

Can you imagine not going to a gym. Then, for one reason or another, you get up the courage to go to a gym. You are a little out of shape and are not sure you know what machines to use or if you are doing anything right. Then, halfway through your workout you hear the gym manager say, "You must be one of those "Febuary fleers" - people who only go to a gym at the start of the year then flee in February." Or, "You don't really care about getting in shape you are just here to look good for summer and ensure your swim suit covers your butt.". 

Would you ever go back to the gym?

One's worship attendance does not make or break a Christian. The desert fathers fled into the desert and rarely went to worship (maybe twice a year?) but their spiritual depth surpasses most of us who go to worship each week. As far as I can tell, according to the gospel's, Jesus only went to the Jerusalem temple a few times. 

So may this be the year we Christians stop with our pharisaic posture of belittling those who may not be in the same place we are in.

You know, like Jesus did.
