does any tribers go to church? are we good faithful people or do we go only when we have to?

they just rebuilt an old church by my house and now with the time of xmas rolling around I have a hankerin to go but, for those of you who met me I'm a fairly intemdating guy (6'5 bouncer type)...so I don't wanna frighten of any parishaners...so I don't want to go because I would stick out like a sore thumb...

I'm curious to know what are peoples thoughts on this issue...and none of that there is no god shit...thats not really what I'm asking...

I just want to see if theres any tribers out there who have a sudden urge to just pay some dues at thier local place of worship

by the way the church I'm talking about is a presbyterian and I am anglician so it's quite similar...

yeah... just go.
If you feel uncomfortable... just go right after a service... when all the people are leaving.
I usually get the urge to go a couple of times a year. Sometimes I go to mass, and sometimes I just go to think.... and I usually go alone.
When things in my life... feel like they are spinning out of control... going to church... and just sitting there and thinking, brings me some peace.
I guess it's sort of like meditation.

i am trying to find a church to go to on christmas eve. it's one of my favourite traditions, even though i remember always being bored out of my skull when i was a kid.

i like the sense of unity. and peace.

i like going to chruch on sunday mornings....it has become a thing my mom and i do now. Because my brothers dont go anymore and my dad sleeps in sundays.
So if i dont go with her...she goes alone..and i feel bad...so i go sunday morning with her, and head to work right after.
Sometimes i take my 3 yrd old nephew because i wish he went more often.
i dont always follow my chruch and their beliefs...but i do belive that my religion has gave me a strong foundation for who i am, and for what i stand for.

No parishioner will care about your height nor your physical appearance. I think Church is a relaxing time, except the singing can be awful at times;) I head to Church every Sunday now, it helps.

By the way: What is the difference between the Church of Scotland and the Church of Enlgand? (other than the obvious)

Stop going a few years ago.

And I grew up as a Roman Catholic going every so often and always on the holidays.

As I lost more and more faith in the church I stopped going all together. I found it was hypocritical to go only on the Holidays with your family, etc.. when you don't truly believe in it.

But to each their own.

i could be wrong, but i think the church of scotland is more gnostic, than the church of england. when the knights templar were disbanded and labeled heretical by the pope many of them migarted to scotland. their practice of christianity stems for scrolls claimed to be found at the temple mound. the scrolls may have contained a fifth, and more accurate gospel.

peace,

Really?
Fascinating stuff. I wonder if the Knights really lost the plot (as some claim) or if they were labelled heretical because of dapolitiks (ie they were gathering land and a potential threat to Church hegemony in those brutal times).
I would have thought the presbyterians were a mere off-shoot of Henry XIII's reforms... time for some reading!

Oh, come on now, that would take effort.

I'm definitely not up to putting an effort toward changing a billion people's idiotic notions. So not worth it.

I don't go to church. I used to be a choir boy and I went to a private catholic school then I just started hating the whole thing. All the priests were very strict, which was okay for academics but you hardly have any freedom and all they do is make you feel repressed for things that might be very natural. But if you find anything positive within their dogma then... good for you.

Okay, well, let's say you were walking by a church and you happen to have a shoe-box full of flaming dog poo. Or you could make a pop-can tab bomb.

I use software that reads the replies in a thread for me, and then I respond based on what I'm told the thread is about.

Cool, eh?
