I've been working doggedly the past few days, and as a result it's made me a sporadic blogger. Before I leave to toil in the merciless hot sun again, I wanted to add something new. Please with hold any high expectations.
While sitting in Church during the last session of the April General Conference, they featured a speaker discussing his days as a young physician in New Zealand. My mind wanders frequently, and after a very intriguing story involving the guidance of a brain surgeon in Christchurch and his role in saving the life of a little boy, I started thinking about this........
What if you lived in Christchurch, New Zealand?
1. Would you feel pious and holier than thou and emphasize your location when talking to people? "Well, you know darling that I'm right, because after all, I live in Christchurch, and I'm divinely inspired."
2. A local bulletin board might read as follows:
An annual meeting of New Zealand ATHEISTS in CHRISTCHURCH.
Come join us at Hippy Hollow NUDIST COLONY located in CHRISTCHURCH.
We're welcoming all LUCIFERIANS to CHRISTCHURCH for our International Convention.
3. I bet crime and health statistics are fun to read:
DRUG USE runs rampant in CHRISTCHURCH.
Corruption and crime reaches epic proportions in CHRISTCHURCH.
STD's and out of wedlock pregnancy on the increase in CHRISTCHURCH.
4. Do things get hopelessly redundant there?
Welcome to the Church of Christ of Christchurch.
Maybe, it's just me, but I found these thoughts amusing. That is until my husband elbowed me and I snapped back to attention to listen to the rest of the Conference.
