RE: Do you ever find yourself at church?
Quite often, I suppose. What with all the weddings and baptisms of my many cousins and their children the last few years.

I don't mind it, I can even choose to stay out of the church during the whole procedure (half of the people do, actually, which I imagine would be unthinkable to do on weddings in other countries).

I don't have to do anything, just stand there and watch, so I don't really care much. It's just... a routine.

Having only recently left (January) I really don't think I could handle it at the moment. I do still have friends there so never say never but the idea of being harassed about my 'walk with the lord' and other such invasions of privacy I'm not ready to deal with now. My capacity to hide any distain is not so good so I'm best staying away for the now. I'm sure I'll be back there at some point when I'm feeling a bit stronger. But not just yet!

RE: Do you ever find yourself at church?
The last time I was in a church was for a Catholic funeral.
I just sat in the back and watched the rituals.
The preist had his robes and funny hat, waved a 'smoker' around for a bit, talked a lot, then served crackers and wine.
Had it not been a funeral, I would have found it amusing.

I actually am not sure when the last time was that I was in a church but I am sure it was for a wedding or a deading.

It may have been several years ago when I went to a Lutheran funeral service for a friend's mother-in-law. No, lightning didn't strike.

RE: Do you ever find yourself at church?
Yes. I go to church with my parents. Frequently. Sometimes with my grandparents. Used to go to appease my ex when we were still together.

I have no qualms with taking communion. I like it when they do intinction - some fun bread and grape juice, it's like a little snack prior to lunch. My ex was surprised at how well I did back in December with not rolling my eyes and saying all the little "and also for you" bullshit.

This reminds me I need to buy an Easter dress. Can't be lookin like white trash on zombie day.

RE: Do you ever find yourself at church?
I went to a funeral last summer at a Mormon church. It was interesting. The deceased had a whole lot of Mennonite friends who attended. When the Mormons sang out of their hymn book the Mennonites sat quietly and didn't sing. That's the only time since I was last in a church as a "trying" Christian.
