"Before you judge me take a look at you
Can't you find something better to do
Point the finger, slow to understand
Arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand."
Last weekend I went out in search of a place to worship. Many Americans use churches not only as a conduit between themselves and their deity, but as a place of reason, moral truth, and socialization. A church is a safe-haven that provides stability and familiarity with one's life. My first option was a Christ the King Lutheran Chapel. Upon first glance it looks like a traditional conservative based Lutheran chapel. Truer words were never spoken. It was the epitome of tradition. This scared me off a tad - due to my moderate tendencies when it comes to religion in general. The service was long and monotonous. It seemed like something out of an old movie. It was an OK experience, other than the crying baby section that I was apparently in. (Which is funny since I'm complaining about the church, maybe I did belong there.)
I will probably not be going back to the Lutheran church soon - but it does not mean it will not be the one I settle on.
Next up, St. Mary's Catholic Parish.
