2 Chronicles 7:1-22

Today’s Reading is 2 Chronicles 7:1-22.
As part of the dedicatory service for Solomon’s temple we read the following: “The priests blew trumpets while all the people stood.” Aren’t you supposed to sit down in church?
No way: “Churches were not commonly furnished with permanent pews before the Protestant Reformation. The rise of the sermon as a central act of Christian worship, especially in Protestantism, made the pew a standard item of church furniture.”
