I went to church today…

Written By: Gary on February 12, 2006 2 Comments

So I don’t consistently or the same place. Especially since it means I have to get up on Sunday early to go to the place I like best. Besides, I don’t like my organized religion too organized.

So we’re reading one of the the prayers out loud and there is a page turn in the middle of it. It’s something they print up with the hymns and readings of the day and a few things just happened to paginate badly. So I read it real quick to see if there are any differences (different churches use different versions) so I don’t actually have to turn the page in the middle of it and draw attention to myself. It’s one of those things everyone should know and I was just checking for variations and I’ve already set my booklet down. So we get to the part where it splits and I practically jump as everyone turns the page, it sounds like a flock of damn birds just took off.

It just struck me as pretty funny at the time. Although my writing here doesn’t really convey how humorous it was then.

I was starving towards the end of the service, I didn’t have time for breakfast since I was in a hurry to go. Now I’m at the goldfish cafe eating waffles right now. Yum!

    Goodness, I haven’t beeen to a church in years. I feel so ashamed saying that considering in my younger years my mother had us practically living at the church (Catholic). I can’t say now that I’d want to attend a Catholic church…my shame stems more from the fact that I haven’t surrounded myself with the belivers in years—even though I do believe.

    To answer your question from a previous comment you made: YES, I do have a blog. I’ve posted the link. :)

    Heh, the page turn thing is _so_ true, especially in liturgical churches…

    It’s kinda funny, though, I go to the campus ministry at Temple now, and we’re all so cradle-raised in our denominations (Lutheran and Episcopal) that most don’t bother with the prayerbooks anymore. I haven’t heard a pageturn en masse in ages.
