BYOP Church

One of the temporal disadvantages of Church is the all too often, often joked-about, all too true, discomfort of pews in a church. Hence, the BYOP (Bring Your Own Pew) Church. For any church, just remove all the pews and allow people to bring whatever seeting they desire; a lawn chair, a folding... Sign in to see full entry.

If there are no caves nearby . . . .

A Church of the Pitch Black (No! I am not referring to dark-skinned Black people!) may be a good simulation. In this church, once services started, the doors would be closed and the lights turned out. The congregation would be in a completely light-free, light-proof room. There would be no sermon,...

Cave Church:

My wife and I visited Mammoth Cave in Kentucky a few years ago. What an experience! I felt "in tune" with the Earth." It was as if I could feel the heartbeat from the deep, particularly strongly when the guide turned off the lights. It was a mystical, spiritual experience to visit the Mammoth Caves....

A "No Minister" Church ---

Or, perhaps it should be called an "All Minister Church." The premise of this church is that there are no sermons by an appointed/hired minister. There may well be an "Administrative Minister" to take care of routine, non-spiritual functions, but the actual ministering would be accomplished by the... Sign in to see full entry.

Church of the Masochistic Sinner . . .

This church would appeal to those few people who enjoy pain. They would go to both atone for their sins and to enjoy the punishements. For instance, the pews could vary, depending on punishment deserved, from merely a hard, uncomfortable bench to sharp-edged seats which may, if not careful, cause... Sign in to see full entry.

Up and Down Church

Do you like relatively short sermons? Well, this church might be for you. The entire congregation goes up in a large plane or several small planes, and sky-dives. On the way down, the minister gives his sermon, definitely a short one, depending on the beginning altitude and prevailing winds.... Sign in to see full entry.

Church of Despair . . .

There is so much going on in the world today, in our very lives, that cause us to despair. Children being raped, murdered, abducted; genocide; Wars around the world; parents abandoning families; politicians lying, cheating and stealing, etc. We are getting to a crisis point. We are reaching a... Sign in to see full entry.

A Roofless Church

Those with Pagan leanings might like such a church, of course, the pews and organ and other furnishings would have to be somehow wqaterproofed, but imagine a church with no roof, that would let in sunshine, moonshine, rain, snow, whatver Mother Nature deigned to send. Now the advantage of such a... Sign in to see full entry.

Dem Bones Holy Church for Healers:

In honor of Dr. McCoy, "Bones," of the original Star Trek Series, Dem Bones Holy Church for Healers would have a congregation madde up primarily of health care givers, doctors, nurses, dentists, psychiatrists, shamen, and so forth. Their "missionary work" would be to heal those who needed it,... Sign in to see full entry.

Church of the Butterflies

It would be neat to have a church built on the design of a butterfly conservatory. Imagine having thousands of beautiful butterflies flutter about during the sermon and during the various hymns. I do believe that such a church would serve to remind us of the beauty of creation, and also would serve... Sign in to see full entry.
