haircut and theology, two bits

So I went yesterday to Chain Haircut Emporium to get a quick haircut and had a new hairstylist. So after my professional vocation is revealed, the stylist starts to tell me about her issues with her church, which I never quite figured out what that was (although I did figure out she was of Baptist origin and considered herself Pentecostal.)

My favorite moment was when she told me she was thinking of staying home and essentially starting a house church. But "I know we need to be covered by a minister, we need to be accountable." She paused to snip. "I don't want to be, you know, the Church of the Flaky Biscuit."

(She got a very good tip, for being very thorough with my thick, unruly hair, and for giving me the quote of the day).

That is one I'll never forget, the Church of the Flaky Bisquit. Hmmm I wonder if the Dough Boy would be the minister? That did make me laugh out loud also....Thank you Emily and Thanks to the new hairperson for having such a colorful vocabulary!

I think I may have visited the Church of the Flaky Biscuit once.

Oohhh...I can already see some denominational debates brewing between the flaky biscuits and the Quaker oats!

Giggling, a great way to start Monday morning!

Must be related to a client of PH's (he's a pastoral counselor) who didn't much like organized churches and so started her own, the Church of Barbara...

Might be worth it to avoid Vestry meetings!

I LOVE it. What a great laugh to start MOnday with.

Don't you love it when people feel compelled to have "The Talk"?
