Church for the Wayward Traveler

... The coverage of Katrina prompted me to think of all the displaced parishoners. In each area where refugees from Katrina end up, a church should be set up for their needs and for some spiritual link to their home church. Local ministers could round-robin the sermons. Local ministers could... Sign in to see full entry.

Foot-in-the-Grave Church

We may need some specialized churches, so, for one, I propose a "Foot-in-the-Grave" Church to serve those who are, so to speak, on the outs when it comes to life. This church would be for those who are thinking their time is near and they want to worship with those on the same "lifeboat," so to... Sign in to see full entry.

Tree Church . . . . . .

This church is for the athletic nature lovers among us. To really enjoy this church you will need a large, old tree with lots of large, strong branches, perhaps a couple or three of them together. The congregation will climb into the trees, that's the athletic part, and make themselves comfortable... Sign in to see full entry.

Church of the Lost & Found

This church is a bit complicated to explain, although the concept is simple. One cannot attend a service in the Church of the Lost and Found without bringing someone with them, or as the guest of such a person. In order to go to this church, you have to invite what you consider to be a "lost soul"... Sign in to see full entry.

Church of the Wayward Priests

This is to be a highly specialized church, solely for priests and ministers who have taken a wrong turn, perhaps not enough to be indighted, but, nonetheless, a wrong turn. It could be that they have not really done something wrong, but that they are losing their faith and need to be spiritually... Sign in to see full entry.

Swing Themed Church

Everything would be "swingin'" here! Instead of pews, there'd be swings, large and small, for the congregation. The music would be from the swing era, and swingers would not be considered to be sinners in this church. Favorite hymns would include "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot." For the swingers, adults...

Church of the Sleepers

Well, it is often joked that people sleep through sermons. Why not a church where it is expected for one to sleep? We could have devices akin tothe old "sleep learning" systems whereby one put a speaker under the pillow and slept while learning material. The same could be done with sermons, eh? Why...

Church for the Dead

What if, at this Church for the Dead, all the local funeral homes would bring the corpses of people who had died that week and sat them up in pews for one last sermon, one last chance to hear the choir, and one last chance to feel the hard, uncomfortable wooden pews on their dead butts. The minister... Sign in to see full entry.

A Cool Church . . . .

And I don't mean "kewl"! On a day like today with the heat index around 105 o F, I thought a church with a pool covering the area usually covered by pews would be, well, a Godsend! The congregation could float, dog-paddle, stand, whatever, in a cool pool while the minister and the choir do thier... Sign in to see full entry.

Church of True Devotion

A currently non-existent church, to my knowledge, and a church that adheres to the teachings of only Christ, based only on His words rather than the words of interpreters such as ministers, and even His disciples. This church would be truly a church of love and devotion..... One of our founding... Sign in to see full entry.
