I’ve lately begun to suspect that the Church is not wholly bent on my sweeping displeasure and total alienation. To be sure, it has done a fine job of putting me off in the ways of particular denominational doctrine, and it has lent handily to my exasperation at church-lady culture. But lately it has missed the piss-me-off mark:

In my church last week a woman served communion.

    The bible uses a family as a symbol for church life. That may explain why it pisses you off so at times. Who could do such a great job of enraging than your family? I jest. At the same time who can build you up and encourage you like your family?

    In my church last week a woman served communion.

    In the church I go to (http://www.fapc.org/), women and men always offer communion — either the female pastors and/or female deacons. So what’s the big deal? 🙂

    I remember that my father once said that he would reject a woman offering communion. In the Catholic tradition, only the priest (male) offers it. Needless to say, I always thought it was stupid.

    By the way, pardon, the last expression, but I can’t think of any other word to describe what I felt at the time. I guess you can call it lack of vocabulary or simply too accustomed to vulgarities. 🙁
