Father Forgive Our Musicians

I laughed out loud when I saw the picture above, to which someone on Facebook had added a comment that this church clearly doesn’t think very highly of its worship musicians! [Read more...]

Churches: Safe Spaces or Self-Destructing Temples?

The above quote from Rachel Held Evans came to my attention soon after a New York Times article noted the misuse of “safe space” as an attempt to try to protect oneself in universities from uncomfortable ideas; and just before Andii Bowsher noted an article in the Telegraph about 38% of churchgoers keeping their liberal views on same-sex [Read More...]

Church of the Final Atonement

IO9 recently shared pictures of futuristic churches, suggesting that even atheists might be able to not merely appreciate them, but be impressed if not even awestruck by them.

But it is explicit as Charlie goes to confession, indicating that he had yielded to sexual temptation, and deciding that he needs to quit the [Read More...]

Slow Church Services

Twenty-Two Words shared a group of 29 unintentionally funny signs. I thought I'd share the one above. Presumably you can get both what its original intent was, and why it is funny. My pastor spoke today in a talk for children about “Why go to church?” Every answer people gave, he said, “but can't you [Read More...]

Fact Checking What the Minister Says
