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".
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?
Once you have determined the type of desk chair you need, you will then want to look at the features you will want included in your chair, including the option of casters or glides. Most office chairs come standard with rolling casters which allow you to move quickly and efficiently from one spot to another. Chairs that have glides are stationary, meaning they do not move unless you pick the chair up yourself. A desk chair with glides would be ideal for extended height applications where your work station is higher than a typical desk and you need a steady chair to work on your projects. Many architects, artists, painters, and lab personnel opt for this style of seating as their work requires them to sit still. Some chairs also come with the option of having pressure breaking casters, which lock to prevent movement while you work whenever pressure is exerted on the wheels.
