I always tell parishes that the images on their homepages should give users a strong sense of what they are all about. This group definitely followed my advice.
I think that the farther away you stray from the breadth and depth of what the church "ought" to be (with its strange admixture of saints and sinners) in order to achieve a type of purity which even our Lord did not prescribe for his followers the funnier the sort of hat you feel impelled to wear. I'm sure this could be proved scientifically.

Well, they rented a 3,500-seat auditorium for the festivities (unless they plan on using the 200-seat wedding chapel), so I think there will be more than a few BabyBlue's in the crowd. Right now their congregations are virtual reality only. Part of the IRD-engineered exodus. I don't think there is much great-commissioning in the plans... just refugee camp census taking.
