Skating Church?



I did use my Copics over PTI Kraft to get a suede look on the skates. They actually turned out to look like the real thing dirty and abused. The skates the place uses have to be 20 years old or better...NASTY...won't catch my feet in a pair!

Our neighbors asked us to go last spring to their annual church skate party and Dinner. I do think it is good for children to experience different faith practices then they are used to. When I was in HS our youth group attended a different Church service quite often. But, never a skating church! LOL!

Yes, our then four year old thought our skate outing was actually to a Skating Church. She happily announced, "I want to go to this Church all the time". Some Church'n shoes those would be! Jessica calls her dress shoes Church'n Shoes. Just give it a few years if you see a Skating Church pop up you know who is running the show.

Jessica's Church'n Shoes...I had to do it! LMAO!


Onto the second half of the night...Hang on here you can't purchase dinner and a show tickets and get this type of entertainment. DH did not get it right away I had to explain when we got to the car. Seriously?!

Okay, after skating we gathered at a local school gym for dinner. Before dinner there was a LONG, very long sermon based on the Apocalypse, Hell Fire, Book of Life, damnation etc... I could not in my mind figure out why he chose this day for that sermon? Did not make sense. I was starting to feel totally out of place. I turned to DH to say this, "DON"T DRINK THE PUNCH."

Okay, do you get it?

**I am in no way making fun of what happened to the people of Jonestown. Such a sad event in history. Heartbreaking indeed. There is a powerful lesson to learn here..."As soon as you can say what you think and not what some other person has thought for you, you are on the way to being a remarkable man." James M. Barrie

Jeremiah 5:30-31... A Horrible and shocking thing has happened in the land. The prophets prophesy lies, the priests rule by their own authority, and my people love it this way. But what will you do in the end?

What will I do in the end? I know I won't be drinking the punch! ;)
