I’m pretty happy with how the fraggle costume turned out. A depressingly large number of people don’t seem to know what a fraggle is, but I suppose that’s what happens when college kids now-a-days were born in the 90s.
It was pretty much guaranteed to be a self fulfilling prophecy when I said a few posts ago that I probably wouldn’t be starting my “atheist in church” adventure yesterday. As expected, I consumed far too much punch and Waffle House on Saturday night to even think about getting up early on Sunday morning.
I’ve had some interesting conversations recently around people’s experiences in different Christian denominations as they were growing up. I always thought I had a pretty good grasp on what the word “Christian” entails from my Church of Christ upbringing, but now I’m beginning to see that isn’t exactly true. It’s becoming clear that CofC is seen an oddity by most, and things I think are crazy strange are surprisingly common occurrences in other churches. I’m really fascinated by the differences I’m hearing about, so hopefully I’m going to start my atheist in church experiment this coming Sunday.
In the mean time, tonight is Rocky Horror! I can’t wait to throw rice and toast at people!
I’m starting a list of churches to visit:
-Booger Hollow Tabernacle
-Russellville First Assembly
-Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Hall
Right now it’s mostly places that sound really really different from CofC, and therefore really fascinating. One is also a special request. I’m open to suggestions- where do you want me to go? Also, I’m looking for church going companions, if anyone’s interested in joining me!
