Church-Going

The church thing is going well. My ride is vanishing for two weeks but I have made a discovery. One of the priests talked last Sunday at announcement time about the adult discussion group that takes place during Sunday School before the 11 am Eucharist. So there is adult ed.

I am continuing to experience relief from depression. It was clearly an important thing for me to find my way to worship again. I am reminded that religion is something we do much more that something we think of believe. We practice religion.

Years ago I was told that William Temple said that Christianity is the most materialistic of religions. So true. Sacraments with material means, bread and wine, water, oil, and physical touch. I needed to get to church, really needed it, for my survival as a person, as God’s creature.
