@Kacey23:  Why exactly are your parents upset?  They just don’t want you to work at all on Sundays?

@Kacey23:  Give them a call. It’s been a few days so feel them out over the phone and don’t let this escalate into a big blow up over nothing.

@Kacey23:  How old are you?  You’re an adult and if you choose to work on Sundays, that’s your decision.  Are you still able to go to church in the morning?  If so, I don’t see what the problem is.  If it were me, I wouldn’t feel like I had anything to apologize for, but that’s just me.

well, you’re an adult, its your decision. Are they “perfect” Christians? I’m geussing not, so they should really choose their battles and not extend their rigidness on you.

I don’t believe pouting (and that includes leaving and ignoring the phone calls) is in any way a constructive way of resolving a fight. Your mother tried to call, that’s a first move toward reconciliation, because she cares. The least you could do is hear what she has to say (why she called) and see if something good can come out of it.

@Kacey23:  Do you have a problem with working on Sundays? If not, you need to express that to your parents. You’re an adult, living in 2013. Things are different from when they were your age.

Tell them Jesus doesn’t make up the schedules or pay your bills.

@Kacey23:  If you are willing to forgive them go ahead and do what’s right (makeup) god forbid anything happens and they left on that note. You love them so make up!

@oldmatron +10000 Yes!

You are an adult and you need to pay your bills. Until you get a different job (if you want one that is) then this is what needs to happen. They need to chill out, you are an adult not a 7 year old who is missing Sunday school.

@Kacey23:  I got pressure from my folks when I was 16 not to work on Sundays. We compromised so that I didn’t work until after church on Sundays. It worked out. Your parents need to bend a little and loosen the apron strings.
