Religious awakening…

Posted: August 5, 2007 in Blog

There are many things I enjoy waking up to in the morning:

1) The aroma of bacon

2) The smell of the outdoors when you are sleeping in a tent

3) The knowledge that you don’t have to rush off to anything

4) The sound of hundreds of church-goers fervently singing gospel music at 7 in the morning.

*The sound of a record coming to a sudden stop*

What was that last one?

The singing this morning started about dawn, and was still going strong at 9:30. Luckily it wasn’t all from the same service. They hold multiple services back-to-back-to-back-to… so it’s the same songs over, and over, and over, and…

Yeah. One of the other guys in the house said he hasn’t slept past dawn on a Sunday since he moved in. “It sounds like they’re singing right outside your window,” he said. It really does.

    You too, huh? The Dutch Reform Church, which sounds kinda conservative, is most certainly not early Sunday mornings.

    From what I can tell they have all the instruments of a rock band, plus hundreds of Holy Rollers belting out hymn after hymn. As an added bonus they practice on Saturday mornings too!
