Makes perfect sense to me.
Unchurched and lacking spiritual connection are two VERY different things. You're verifying that. And who doesn't pray for a quicker green light?
I know those stoplight prayers - cool write, MZ. I love it.
But, but ... Mommy, the light will change whether we pray or not! Those are the best prayers.
"Unchurched". Love that MZ word.
Just love this… and I agree "unchurched" is not necessarily a bad thing. Mine wish they were at times, I suppose. :)
…and for now, my college ones are… ;P
Precious in a wonderful weird way!
Spiritually real. Now step on it. The light just changed. Amén.
I really like the assonance at the ends of most of your lines.
This sooo nice, Mom. I would say cute too, except it is a serious matter. Aren't you glad for the stop lights and the stoplight prayer idea. I am thinking the idea was a revelation to you. Not 'weird' to me. Different, yes. I didn't ever go to church until the 5th or 6th grade. Mom said she would not go without her husband. I feel that Dad had some sort revelation. He and the rest of us went every Sunday until I left home for college. Then I quit until I started going with my to be first wife. ..
Unchurched...I like that. I wish I had left my girls unchurched..long, painful story. Great write!
prayers for safety.
We need our charms and spells, or the dark becomes something we just can't handle. Thanks for a great challenge, MZ.
