I made it to church this morning, with the help of Google Maps.
As I revel in being #backinthefirstworld, I’m taking advantage of all the wonders of the internet that were off limits to my former offline existence. So: when I need to find a place to attend church that will be a) close to my current sublet, or b) close to where I’m working and need to be this afternoon, I headed for Google Maps and typed “church near [the address of my home or office]” (this gives the same results as the old “church loc: address” search syntax).
There were too many options, so I exercised my picky-ness and changed it to “Episcopal”, and then Googled all the results that looked to be in the right neighbourhood. I chose one with a service time that fit my schedule; in the end, it was the one I’d spotted when walking to work last week.
So that’s what it boils down to: a church in the right place, at the right time.
Are these the important things to look at when choosing a church?
