Church has many guises

To some, Church may mean a place where the word “Amen” is fervently whipped around a lively room of “praise Jesuses” & vivacious hallelujahs. There may be dancing in isles, unbridled chanting or a chorus of powerhouse voices. Revving up some kind of radical redemption, Church can be a theatrical production, almost a rock ’n’ roll concert, or even a political-style rally. Church can be a celebration, a feast, or a formal festivity. Church can be a pleasant potpourri of hopeful hymns, timeless rituals, & solemn prayers that summon the soul. Church can even be an exclusive clandestine clubhouse for initiates or members only.

On the other hand, Church can be a mundane, rigid, cold, redundant rabbit hole we slip into each week by a default gear indoctrinated by religion. There is a mouthpiece poised on the pulpit broadcasting a monotone monologue with robotic cues to dosed off, checked-out, barely breathing bobbleheads. In this case, Church may exude a vapid air of melancholy, devoid of connection, conviction, or enthusiasm. These days, thankfully, this scenario has fizzled out. More often than not, Church serves many practical purposes for the betterment of us, our kin & communities.
