Random and not so random musings from a 5th generation NE Missourian who became a 1st generation Episcopalian. Let the good times roll!

I definitely like these!

You might be Episcopalian if…

…It takes four people to change a light bulb in church. One to call the electrician, one to mix the drinks, one to say, “but my mother donated that light bulb!” and one to talk about how much better the old one was.

…When the Holy Spirit touches you, you don't raise your hands and shout Hallelujuah, rather you scratch your chin, turn to your neighbor and whisper "hmmm, . . . that was a good point."

…You scowl when saying words like "Baptist" & "Evangelical".

… You first quote the Book of Common Prayer and then say, "Oh yeah, the Bible says this somewhere, too."

… You are personally repulsed by Campus Crusade for Christ.

… Saying a blessing before the first round of drinks doesn't seem strange to you at all.

…Coffee is a line item in the official church budget.

… you're watching "Star Wars" and when they say, "May the force be with you," you reply, "and also with you." have an uncontrollable urge to sit in the back of any room.

…you can argue theology with yourself when one else is around.

...sharing the peace during the service takes more time than the sermon.

…if the church were on fire, you would rush in and save the coffee pot.

… you know what a "dead spread" is.

… you know what an “undercroft,” a “sacristy,” and a “narthex” is.

…you believe in prayer, but would practically die if asked to pray out loud.

…you believe your priests will visit you in the hospital, even if you don't notify them that you are there.

…you feel guilty for not staying to clean up after your own wedding reception in the undercroft.

…you believe the Bible forbids you from crossing the aisle when passing the peace.

… it's 110 degrees outside and you still have coffee after services.

ADDENDUM: More "You might be Episcopalianisms..." here.


I think this post was very funny and the same time was very developed, you know what I mean with this comment... also the best way to find something through the blog is for the blogroll that you've done.
