"The Body of Christ compelled her."

Walking home tonight, there was this man and woman in front of me.  The woman asked the man if he went to church.  He said he did when his mom said they had to because they were with grandma, which is once a year.  She said she loves going to church.  He asked her what she gets out of it.  She says a feeling of community, and tradition.  She said she went to church last week, with her Jewish friend, to Trinity Episcopal -- the big deal church by Copley.  They talked about Communion and she said taking Communion makes her feel so comfortable.  This is of course in great contrast to how I feel around taking Communion.  The talk about community and tradition reminded me of sk8eeyore and others.  They turned onto Endicott Ave. so I did not get to hear the rest of their conversation.

I have lots to say about The Last Days of Judas Iscariot*, of course, but sleep is good and I just wanted to write down that story before I forgot.

*N.B. They lie; the program says 2:45 plus a 10-minute intermission, which is more accurate.  We started fairly soon after 7:30 and ended at 10:35.  Just an FYI for your planning, if you go.
