Church On the Beach

A local Methodist church has Sunday morning services at 7:30 on the pier at the beach for the summer. I love going because it's really casual and it's outside and I just think it's neat. Someone brings a chocolate lab that sprawls out on the pier and snoozes through the whole thing. People bring chairs or you can sit on the benches. They bring a small sound system. It's pretty neat to see people fishing or going out in their boats while the service is going on.

And while the service is ultra casual, I wonder if some people think about what they are wearing. I have no problem with the runner who accidentally finds church on the beach and stays in running clothes. Or the man who will soon be on his wind surfer. But the woman in front of me wearing a t-shirt that has something funny about drunk lobsters? Something I don't exactly understand? Not exactly church material. On the back of her shirt, there was a picture of a bunch of lobsters sitting at a bar and one fell off the chair onto the floor. And it said something like "watch for falling lobsters." Hmmm.

    I'm having fun exploring your blog today.


I love comments almost as much as I love summer. I reply to all comments except those ridiculous anonymous comments offering me dirty deeds and real estate.

Nothing makes me sadder than replying to your comments and then realizing it’s going to the no-reply@blogger address!
