  1. I’ll sound off..1. I tend to take notes, but in the margins of my Bible, not on a searpate sheet or notepad. This helps me gain a better understanding of the context of the passages. Since I teach a Home Bible Study, these notes help me to clarify the subjects/topic for my students .2. We have an American flag and a Christian flag. I don’t see this as an issue; aren’t we called to support (not quite the right word) those that have been placed in positions of leadership? The kids in church all know and recite the Pledge of Allegiance (and know what it means).3. This is a loaded question. Infants go to the nursery and children under 4th grade go to Power Hour (children’s church). Otherwise, families tend to sit together, but there are groups, too. Some teens sit together, the young adults/singles sit together, etc. I would say most people prefer that the younger kids and infants go to their respective locations. It is much less distracting for those in the sanctuary, and the kids are being taught the same biblical precepts on their level of understanding.4. No formal liturgy in my church, no historic creed, no recitation of the Lord’s Prayer. Not sure why this is, but I would imagine that it hsa to do with the fact that most people don’t take the time to try to understand what they are reciting. As for the significance, I’ve attended churches in the past that recited the Apostles’ Creed and sang the Doxology every week. Unless someone (the pastor?) takes the time to explain them, there is no edification of the church body, and people do it because that is the way it has always been done .
