Men need rest more than church on Sunday

WASHINGTON - The worship leader of America's largest congregation says some hard working men may need their Sabbath rest more than they need to be in church on Sunday.

Gospel singer Israel Houghton says that in 2012, many men are having to work more than one job to make ends meet and may need Sunday morning to recover.
Houghton, who leads worship for 43,000 people at Houston's Lakewood Church, says he would give that man grace rather than grief for missing church once in a while.

He says worship is real when it's something you get to do rather than something you've got to do.
