As a favor to a friend, I went to church this past weekend for the first time in more than half a decade. Many things went through my mind while there...
"I could never go to this church. There's not one hot chick to be found".
"Why don't these seats rock?"
"Why do the kids get to read secular materials during the service?"
I'm so used to movie theatres that when a mom and her child kept talking, I really had to restrain myself not to say, "Shhh!"
I was quite surprised to find that I was still able to quickly find Bible books and verses (Galatians is late New Testament, Numbers is early Old). I learned this skill as a young'un.
If only the Bible included the superior Gospel of Thomas; this is my favorite quote from it:
"The Kingdom of God is within you, not in buildings of wood and stone.
Split a piece of wood and I am there, lift a stone and you will find me."
