I once was lost but now I'm found

VBS - Vacation Bible School. MiniMe got her first taste of it a few weeks ago.

We're spiritual people, in our own way, without the dogma of four specific walls within which to worship a labeled deity. Between the two of us, Mr. O and I have been in and out of Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Lutheran, Methodist, Episcopalian, Presbyterian and Unitarian congregations. We were married by a Native American minister. And in 12 years of living among a highly concentrated Mormon population, theology and dogma are woven into our daily life via the news, politics and neighbors.

Naturally, MiniMe asks questions about church since we don't attend one. A friend invited her to attend the Lutheran version of VBS for the week, so I said "why not?"

Among several peppy, pop-Christian songs, she happily and frequently sings two full verses of Amazing Grace word for word.

And now *I* can sing two full verses of Amazing Grace word for word. In my head. Over...and over...and over...and over...

Please, join me.

You're welcome.
