10:41 am - Some marketing amusement, and an update on things
I picked this little bit of razzle-dazzle on the Crummy Church Signs blog, always a good read. What if Starbucks marketed like a church?

I have finished Trance 1, and am working my way through my last unanswered question of Divination 2. . . Or, I was until I realized that I had somehow entirely missed a 600-word essay summarizing the results of divinations I did. Oy. Now, instead of a single, paltry 1,000 word essay, I have to write two essays that total at least 1,600 more words.

Yesterday was not a good day. Today, so far, is shaping up much nicer. Tomorrow, of course, is The Game, which means that football season at Ohio State begins and ends tomorrow, as it does every year. And tonight, I think, will be a night at Wildlights at the Columbus Zoo.

The Grove has also (thanks to seamus_mcnasty's inspiration) decided to run our own World AIDS Day event, since apparently there are no WAD events in Columbus that I have been able to find and get attached to. Now I get to figure out how to make it work :)

I've been fortunate that, since Samhain, I'm not as busy as I was all summer and all autumn. At the moment, I'm spending a lot more time relaxing, getting in some Diablo 2 and finally completing two Clergy Training Program courses. I'm almost a month ahead of schedule on my CTP work at this point, but staying on that course requires that we pass the remaining four courses in CTP Circle 2 before Jan. 1, 2009. We'll see how that goes.

Anyway, I have more software to release today. . .

Meh. I went to a Pentecostal church when I was a kid, and it wasn't really like that (and they're supposedly the most rabid). I don't recall anyone looking down on any new people; then again, most of the parishioners were pretty poor. You also weren't asked to fill anything out before the service; maybe you were after, but I don't recall. You were, however, strongly encouraged to come down for the altar call, but nobody was ever *specifically* singled out. Instead, the preacher would say something like, "The Lord is telling me that there's someone new here who needs to come down and receive him... you know who you are..." or something to that effect. I actually prefer small Pentecostal services to the megachurch crap.
