    Which one did you go to?


    I'm looking for a new church for my daughter and myself.

    I'm thinking Unitarian or maybe the Quaker Church.

    We belong to the United Methodist Church, same one I've attended since I was a baby. I think we need a change, and wonder what other churches are like.


    Thanks!

    I'll be leaving to go soon. I go to a Baptist church, but it's probably not for everyone. I like the moral groundedness (is that a word? :lol:) but it's a little heavy on the hellfire and brimstone.

    It's funny, I was just thinking of starting a 'what kind of church do you go to?' thread.

    Baptists are pretty decent, most of the ones I have known in real life are pretty cool. The ones I like the most are the Lutherans, use to talk to one of their priests (he died a year ago) about all sorts of existential views. He was probably almost as knowledgeable in Egyptology as I am.

    Aside from weddings and funerals I haven't been to a church in over 25 years.
    I find no benefit for me in organized religion.

    No I did not go to church today. I only go a few times a year. I'm a lazy Christian.

    But this inspires a question for a new thread.
