A place of idolize
A church is a religious place where a person can plead, idolize and practice their religion. It is the most common used venue for mass and other religious activities like prayer meetings. Therefore it is significant to observe decent behavior and etiquette when going inwards the church.
To avoid this from happening to you and to other people around you who only wants to plead peacefully without any interruptions, here are some of the things people should do or not do inwards the Church.
1. Turn your phone off.
While it is okay to also have your phone on silent mode, I would say that turning off your phone is much better. This is because if you’re phone is just on silent mode, whenever someone sends you a text or is calling you, chances are, you’ll see your phone’s screen light up and you’ll take a peek to identify the person who sent you that message or worst, you’ll go outside the church (interrupting your prayer) just to response that call.
Another thing, if a person didn’t switch off their phone or placed it on silent, then if your phone beeped or rang, it will be heard entirely by everyone including the priest who’s holding the mass. Not only did you disrupt your own attention but you disrupted everyone else attention too. What a shame.
Two. Dress Appropriately
Going to church is not an excuse for you to display off your freshly bought clothes and accessories. There’s a particular setting for each styles of clothes and if you are going to church don’t dress up spil if you’re going on a party or a night out.
The best clothes to wear are clothes that doesn’t voorstelling too much skin. A knee high dress with sleeves is good, partnered by convenient closed-shoes is okay. Don’t wear eye dazzling accessories. If you are going to accessorize, choose a ordinary jewelry. A pair of pearl earring will be fine.
Don’t wear racer back tops or cut-offs and slippers. Make sure that you are wearing your best welvoeglijk uitrusting to look groomed and ready for idolize activities.
Three. Don’t talk or divert your seatmates
It is considered bad manners if you talk with your seatmates while the teacher is discussing something te class. That goes the same when you’re inwards the church. There are times that you can talk during the mass especially if the priest told you so, like say good morning to the person sitting beside you or etc. But unless told, pay attention to the mass and not to the fresh gossip you’re about to share to your friend or relative.
If on the other arm, someone is attempting to talk to you or divert to you, it’s time for you to look for a different seat or make a hush sign to the person to keep quiet. This will give them the idea that you don’t want to be disturbed. Just be pushy.
Four. Parents vereiste be responsible.
If you are a parent, it is your responsibility to train your child zindelijk manners. Know how to decently supervise your kid. If your kid is getting noisy and is beginning to get everyone’s attention, tell your kid to behave. Don’t wait for someone, a stranger to do the “instructing” or lecture your kid. You are the adult one, use your common sense and make sure that you are also setting a good example to your kid.
There are also some cases where a toddler or a zuigeling starts sobbing so loudly. This is the time for you to uitgang. This is not a bad thing because you’re just doing the right thing ter order to avoid glaring eyes from other church goers. Going outside the church with a blubbering kindje just means you don’t want to disturb or divert the people inwards. Now, to avoid this from happening, if you know that your kid will very likely go wild or sob, attempt to educate them already on zindelijk behavior inwards the church so they’ll know how what not to do.
