This Church Service In Tennessee Includes Everything But God

There is, however, one rather fundamental missing ingredient that sets this congregation apart from the hundreds of others turning out to worship this Sunday morning in Nashville: this is a church without God.

I STILL wish they wouldn't call it a church, and yeah, I mean the news reporters, not the organizers of the Sunday Assembly.

I saw this on a CNN special with Morgan Spurlock called "Inside Man." Quite honestly, I'm not at all impressed with the idea of non-believers imitating a church service; especially on Sunday morning. Strikes me as wanting to belong to a religious 'type' group, therefore they will mimic one without the supernatural mumbo jumbo. Emulate the religious. I have no desire whatsoever to emulate them or their social structure. Want to have a met up? Go to a bar or coffee house - and do it on a Tuesday.

That's what my local group does.  Every second or third Sunday morning, around 11:00, we have our coffee meetups.

Of course there's the Ethical Humanist Society in Chapel Hill which does weekly secular services.  I've only been to those once or twice, myself.  After 18 years of weekly Catholic mass, I've had enough church-like shit for one lifetime.

It might be something of a generational thing, since almost everyone at the Humanist thing is 60+.

sounds nice!
