First Sunday

 

58Hv.2

The latest feature on from the sticks to the bricks and back again, First Sunday, pays tribute to the Baptist tradition of First Sunday. Attending First Sunday services always invoked a sense of joy and community in me while also reminding me to be grateful for what it is.

I am a Catholic girl, who has observed the Islamic holy month of Ramadan on multiple occasions and joined the Baptist Church by accident but stayed for years because I liked it. Currently, I attend church only on demand – baptisms, weddings and funerals. If I have to identify myself religiously I would say I’m a non-practicing Catholic/Southern Baptist with Muslim tendencies.

The focus of this feature will be gratitude and the recognition of God’s grace at work in my life. And as might be expected from a non-practicing Catholic/Southern Baptist with Muslim tendencies and lots of opinions, I might veer off onto commentary on contemporary religious issues or share some of my experiences with organized religion.
