Sunday, July 14, 2002 AD The Sunday Quiz (Stolen from Davey)
Q: Do you attend church services with any family members?
A: Sometimes when my mom's in town she goes to my church. Sometimes when I'm in NH, I go to her church.
Q: What would, in your mind, typify an excellent sermon?
A: One in which the preacher's love for truth, the God of truth, and the people of God of truth is evident. I want to hear both knowledge of the written word and passion for the Incarnate Word, that I might be encouraged to grow in both.
Q: Do you believe in dressing in your Sunday best?
A: Pretty much, though you couldn't tell it today. I wasn't feeling well this morning, slept late, and then just grabbed the first clean thing I could find before running out the door late.
Q: Do you believe in bow ties? What about three-piece suits?
A: No, I don't believe in them...they're a figment of our collective imagination...they don't really exist! Seriously, I've no objection to either, though I'd prefer not to have to wear them myself, being a girl and all. I do wear bows in my hair sometimes, though! ;^)
Q: Would you feel more comfortable participating in a high or low church liturgy?
A: Sometimes I go to the early church at my almost liturgyless church, then slip over to the Reformed Episcopal congregation to get a taste of real liturgy. I don't know how "high" it is in the scheme of things, but I prefer it.
Q: Can you sing a part other than melodic soprano?
A: If we're singing a hymn, I try to read the alto line on at least a couple stanzas. If it's a chorus, I usually make up some kind of harmony--sometimes alto, sometimes a higher descant.
Q: What do you most like to do after church?
A: I'm trying to get into the regular habit of having people over for lunch, conversation, whatever else transpires! Today a friend was having an open house for her roommate who's headed to India for seven months, so I helped out there instead of doing my own hospitality.
