Whoa. Cosmic.

Jo

Sophie's is actually the Anti-Pecky, who is put on earth to tempt his adherents with Sin. Next time Moomin is over we'll lay that on him. Heh. (not)

Rook

Dude. No, seriously. Dude.

Also, I think the skipping off to eat cupcakes shows a good attitude towards religion. Still, I'd like to try maybe that Presby+erian church at some point with him. (The Unitarian didn't really work for me.)

I'm all about it being really pretty, with stained glass and good music. I'd go to the one in Polo Alto that's all liberal and has sermons on being transgender and stuff on their site. they look cool and they have a big organ. Size matters, in organs! ... the Manlo Park one fucking sucks if you look at their website, there must be a huge Presbyt. political split because they look like complete dickweeds!!! Well, anyway I'll go once in a blue moon but no way could i do it every week. I would fear the idea of sunday school. but i'd take him to the services once in a while, he might listen and it could make him think & ask questions.

About the cupcakes - Yes, it was as if he came to a realization, and then all was well with his world again. He skipped off as if he was comforted and happy! Like an infant learning to soothe itself to sleep - he figured out a solution to his own existential despair!

Or, you know, he just noticed something shiny and then there were cupcakes and I'm totally overinterpreting!

omg where are you? i see you active on chat. did you leave yourself logged in, in some internet cafe? aaaaaaagh. I miss you. and I should have given you this cool volume of seneca's letters. Philosophy! It's the best. Seneca was totally a blogger, you know?

If you are talking about the really big church in downtown, I temped there for about 3 months doing database work. It was an interesting experience, especially for someone who is not Christian anymore yet knows more about Christianity than a lot of so-called Christians. I had the experience in sitting in one co-worker's office while she explained Assembly of God symbology to me and kept thinking, "PLEASE tell me you're joking."

here is something that Moomin and Jo's daughter would like:

This is something I would have liked when I was a larval chemist.

don't worry, badger, Moomin is a panenthist, that's all. it's a heresy, but not an official one, that would be a pantheism, you know, where god is in a tree, or a rock or the cosmos or everything. panentheism, on the other hand, is only adjectivally heretical because people confuse it with pantheism; it's where trees and rocks and the cosmos etc. are in god as opposed to vice versa. but neither is likely to be addressed in sunday school. and if it's the asthetics you're after, you probably want the episcopalians. wer're the good guys, you know. about to be kicked out of the communion for having a gay bishop? take him up to Grace in SF, is what you want to do. check out the website. You'll see what I mean.

badgerbag

I'm not christian, e! And am not trying to make Moomin one... just thinking that a little exposure to it is okay.

serena

I second the motion for Episcopal churches. I still go to Grace Cathedral every time I'm in SF and sit there for hours. They have a labyrinth walking meditation rug, and art projects in the nave for various holidays, and some really excellent stained glass.

e

didn't think you were. which is why I suggested Grace.

badgerbag

I should check it out! i've never been to any of the big churches in SF except the unitardian one - when the poetry festival was there.

I totally loved this post. And I grew up Episcopalian, even got confirmed at Grace, but fat lot of good it did. Episc. was good for me - loose - of course, my church was two blocks from Telegraph in Berkeley in the 60s and 70s, so. Then as a grownup I was Presby a bit. Now I'm none of the above so I view an arc from childhood through Episcopalianism and Presbyterianism to a sort of functional agnosticism, despite being way too many isms, as a good thing. Kids do need the exposure, if only so they can relate a little with the churched people that are part of their culture too. With these growing culture wars we need to understand each other.
