Tiny Church

Tiny ChurchChurch is so mislabeled and criticized and scorned and rejected.
Something has to be the cause of all our unhappiness. So people who claim to know it all are the first mocked. Been going on since forever…

Somewhere, someone must have a handle on what is right and what is wrong. How do we find them? Are they poor or rich, Hispanic, Russian, Arab, American…..??? YouTube?

Maybe if you look into the night skies and deep into infinite galaxies you will find a way to start your journey. By accepting that you are beyond finite and unable to comprehend creation.

Then there is this little tug inside some label as conscience. Trying to pull you one way or another. It is often your last resort when all the experts fail. To reveal the Truth. This is your church. Talking to yourself is ok if you are searching for what is the right thing to do. You don’t need tall steeples and ornate altars to search… until… you are ready to accept them as potential aids.

Of course, there is no God…. Unless you just believe of course. So try talking to Him as if He were real… just for kicks. Just for a week. See if any of your opinions are affected. Nobody has to know. You report to nobody but yourself.

You will have been in your own church for a week. Your Tiny Church.

You don’t have to kneel, you don’t have to pay, you don’t have to pray.

Make my day.
