It seems to me that a man standing in front of people at church will often build some form of tension in the room. The tension is due to the anticipation of some constraint or expectation that may have implications for the listeners’ lives. All at once, this tension is relieved, and the listeners are given implicit permission by the man to continue on with their lives as they are. Content to have been made slightly uncomfortable, they approve of the man, and continue to pay his salary.

It all seems like an awful waste of time.
