Holy Visit

So I was invited to church today. The last time I was at church was … I can’t  remember the last time I was at church — bad, I know. I had my reservations about going, but I went nonetheless, albeit kick and screaming … in my head.

It’s a nice way to start the week. A change to my normal modus operandi. Most of us have a lot to be thankful for. My primary reason for not going to church though, was that I am of the view that you don’t have to physically attend a place of worship to give God (or whomever you worship) thanks and give praise. A relationship with God (or whomever) is not and should not be restricted to a building.

Suffice it to say, it turned out quite well. Today’s lesson was about sex — one of the many topics I am passionate about. The guest speaker described the body as “aesthetically appealing” for unmarried couples — a beautiful thing to be admired at a distance. And for married folks, she stressed the importance of pleasing their spouse. For married folks, their body is “aesthetically pleasing”. The husband’s body belongs to his wife and vice versa. Wives should always try and please their husbands and so too must the husband. Its a partnership.

As I there sitting in the pew observing, I realized that not much has changed though since my last visit. The congregation was quite vocal and passionate when it came to singing and the pastor did that thing where his altar call speech sounded like it was written with you in mind!

Did I mention that it rained when I got home? A sign maybe? 🙂 😆

Until next time.

Namaste!
