    I did had thoughts about it, when I was in church. But I never did it.

    Of course I did when I was a kid.  Now I am wide awake, hungry for God's good word.  I didn't know any better then.

    I confess, I have fallen asleep in church service.  But I was not alone.  It was not the preacher's fault.

    Following asleeping in church is very easy to do. I sometimes get drowsy seeing that it is so early in the morning. Some preachers and sermons can sometimes be boring because the speaker is not very clear or loud enough. It's not so much that anyone is not interested in the message, but can depend on the presentation.

    Yes. After working very late, I decided to go to church. I fell off to sleep during the collection! No money was placed in the plate that Sunday!

    Yes. It is sometimes easy to do. At times I am just tired and go to sleep. Other times I just don't like the speech. Often I think anyone can become a paster.

    Yes, it happened way back. In the Philippines we has this tradition of Dawn Masses. These masses are done 9 days before Christmas. when i was a kid, they told me to complete my attendance and my wishes will be granted. I was so excited then so I haven't slept because of excitement. So i ended up sleeping in the church. Thank goodness, i have my neighbors with me to wake me up. smile

    I find the best way to avoid falling asleep in church is to avoid it all together. I seem to have saved myself the embarrassment ....

    I was so tired that day and was feeling damn sleepy..however I managed not to sleep but didn't stand for long in the church. I kept siting on my bench.
