Happy Easter.
Tags: church left
Jess and I went to church this morning. It was a festive event. We attended service at the First Congregationalist Church of Tucson. The church, people-wise, is small, but personable--appropriate to Tucson. The UCC is one of the little-known "left" churches, the other one I know of is the UU--Unitarian Universalist Church.

I sort of have a feeling of weirdness after visiting new religious places. The mix of metaphysics and ethics has the effect of a narcotic drug on me. I sleep easier when I think in terms of these things. The same thing happened to me at the Nebraska Zen Center in Omaha. I think such things are good for me. It gets the highs higher and the lows less low, because church is non-intense intensity for me. How can one act best in one's lot over a great amount of time?

And then I read a New York Times Magazine article about megachurches, the featured one of which is only a few hours' drive away, in Sunrise, right outside of Phoenix. I don't believe that there are any "left" megachurches.

Nonetheless, churches in America are changing. I'll be slowly deciding whether I want to get in on that; for now I'll say that I enjoyed my moment of church somnolence. --Adam
