13. Why did most churches only meet once or twice a month? Around here, in these parts, well the church is a very important thing to these people. It's backwoods. It's isolated. I've already worn out a couple good horses just trying to keep my preaching appointments from one week to the other. I'm only able to give this church any attention one Sunday and Saturday a month. I have other preaching places on other Saturdays and Sundays. Besides that even during the week. But many times in many seasons, this is the only chance that our people have a chance to get together.
