Come As You Are
Arriving at the train station this morning I was greeted by an Anglican priest in full regalia. He and his buddies were handing out pamphlets urging us to attend church this Sunday. He was delighted to have his picture taken and took it all in excellent spirit, even though he knew I wasn't religious.
The train station event was part of a "back to church" campaign on behalf of the the Church of England [Bishops' call to 'come as you are' this Sunday].
Don't worry about dressing up. They'll be happy to see you no matter what you're wearing.
Cute idea. If you have to go to church next Sunday then your local Anglican church in Canada or the UK is far better than some of the alternatives.
The fact that churches are having to advertise is a very good sign. It brought a smile to my face and made my day.
Cool outfit, by the way.
