So, here is the gist of a conversation I overhead in a restaurant yesterday. A man and two women were sitting in the booth next to me and I couldn't help but listen in...
Older Woman: I'd like to go to church for Christmas but I don't want to go alone. And I don't know where to go.
Younger Woman: What kind of church are you looking for?
Older woman: Well, I really like churches with beautiful windows and pretty music. There is one over on the DU campus. It's Catholic, I think.
Man: It's not Catholic. It's unaffiliated.
Younger Woman: Just as well. Catholics are so weird about stuff.
Older woman: Well, I just want pretty windows and pretty music. I don't care about sermons. I never listen anyway.
Younger Woman: Yeah, me neither. I just like to look around. Sermons are boring. Don't go to a Lutheran church. They are just like Catholics. Someone once told me, if you are Catholic, you'll feel really comfortable in a Lutheran church because they are exactly the same.
Older woman: Well, I'll just try and find a pretty church. I don't care what kind it is.
Now, you know I was just dying to butt into this conversation. I'll talk about my thoughts on it tomorrow. For now, just enjoy the crazy things that people say. I get so tired of my fellow human beings sometimes.
How did Jesus do it?
