I went to church this weekend, not once but three times. No, I haven’t been given some bad news by the doctor, and so rediscovered my faith in God. The church in question is the Church of Fools, a three month experiment by Ship of Fools and the Methodist Church.
Not everyone agrees with this idea, of course, but personally I think it a bold attempt to move with the times. I also like the way the 3-D church is also fairly traditional in its look. I’m of the old school that believes churches should be old, cold draughty and smell of that combination of mustiness, polish and candle smoke. Oh, and sing proper hymns, like He Who Would Valiant Be etc.
As for the anti-preacher above, perhaps he should follow the Christian habit of, “If you can’t say anything nice, it’s best not to say anything at all.”
