A Homework Assignment

Was told to go to a church on Sunday. Write a report and hand it in on Tuesday morning.

I’m scared, :scream_cat:

have you got a Dictaphone? could just record the sermon just a thought church people are very friendly from what I remember youll be fine.

If churches freak you out I would suggest maybe choosing a Unitarian church?

Checked out the local Unitarian Church website.

  • 42 members
  • Three large circular sofa’s
  • Coffee

No thanks. :scream_cat:

Then pick a medium size church and sit in the very back.

go to one of those mega churches where you’d be totally anonymous in the crowd…I’ve been to one a few times for some reason and it didn’t even feel like church…more like going to the mall.

Sit in the balcony.

My wife went through a period of searching for a church she liked and I went along with her to several. I would say to remember that each church is different, and that there is no perfect church (an understatement).

The Catholic church in town has a balcony. Good idea pob.

My report is supposed to include

  • Social interaction
  • Maintaining proper eye contact
  • Anxiety level
  • Making use of non verbal communication

I have to go to church to talk to people.

People in church are generally friendly and want to talk, even to strangers and first-timers. It’s not like a bar or a party. It’s people coming to worship, mostly with their families and other families. You will always run into a couple mean people wherever you go, but at churches people are usually on their best behaviour and the very nature of church is that people are accepting and friendly.

There are some folksy kind of churches. Wear whatever clothes, guitar playing - interesting sermon thats meaningful to modern life. No Shadrak, Meeshak and Abednigo - I would fit in better at a church like that. The people might be friendly.

I think your class is a cover for therapy.

I’m not a church-goer by any means so take this as you will. Methodists seem like a great bunch. Very friendly and welcoming. Their services are less painful to sit through than Catholic or or other Christian ones.
