The size of the back of the chair is one of the most important features. For an executive chair to be truly comfortable, the top of the back of the chair should be no lower than the middle of the back of the person's head who will be using the seat. In a truly comfortable office chair, a person should be able to lean back and have their head rest against the back of the chair or a headrest. Many lower quality chairs have backs that extend up almost to the back of a person's head, but not quite. If a person leans back in one of these chairs, their head hangs over the back and it is quite uncomfortable.
How is it that some church chair dealers can advertise and offer "Free Shipping" on the chairs they sell, at least to some areas of the country? After all, trucking rates nationally have skyrocketed in recent years with high fuel costs and increasing government regulation and expensive equipment all contributing to this trend. When a company advertises that they provide free shipping on church chairs purchased from them to many states, and subsidized shipping to most other states, HOW are they able to do so? Are we really to believe that there are those who enjoy incurring all the expenses associated with loading and unloading, and maintaining trucks, and paying $5.00 a gallon for diesel fuel in a truck that gets 5 miles a gallon, so that a church can receive FREE SHIPPING on their chairs?
As I reflected on this pastor's statement, a couple of thoughts came to my mind. One is that his statement was a very personal one that indicated a preference that was important to him and was a value I needed to honor. An additional thought though was about what actually makes a chair a "church chair". Here is an expansion on those thoughts with three observations as to what really is needed for a chair to be labeled a "church chair".
