  1. Part 5 of the “Church Etiquette” series states there will be a Part 6. Is that available? Thanks.

  2. It looks like I am not the only one 🙂 You state in Part 5 “…it is irreverent and distracting if people leave the sanctuary at certain times during the service. We will talk about this in detail in Part 6 of this series. Stay tuned!” If available, please share Part 6 with us; we are interested in reading your thoughts. Thanks.
