When I was growing up, we sat close to the front (Dad was the preacher and Mom may have been the pianist, depending on the size of the church).
If Dad had to stop preaching, the kid who caused it did a lot of praying for the rest of the service, on the way home, and until Dad got home. If we were lucky, our prayers were answered and we got ONLY a lecture. If we weren't lucky, well, it was the late 1960s and spankings were still one of the main ways to deal out discipline to children.
I still remember the evening service where my bored younger brother kept going for my purse to see if there was anything amusing in there.....and I was the one who got in trouble at church.
He did get a reprimand when we got home - but the message that I took from that evening was to sit far away from him......because he got bored easily and putting it on my other side wasn't enough of a deterrent....
Looking back, he was probably hyperactive - but it was too early by ten or twenty years to get that kind of diagnosis in small towns in West Texas.
