Gay Guy in Seminary: Day 21 (Mission Bay Community Church)

Today was pretty laid back compared to yesterday's 12 mile hike through the mountains. Slept in "late" which means I woke up at 8:00 with the SFTS bell tower. Did some laundry. (Stupid machine ate my quarters!!! >_<) AND, I finished filling out the Inquirer forms! WOO HOO!!!! It truly wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. There weren't even any essays to write/plagiarize from myself. I don't know why I put it off for so long. Although, I have been getting the sneaking suspicion that I need to look the forms over again, just in case.

Drove Amber to work; she's car-less right now, then went to Mission Bay Community Church with Terra and Tom. The traffic was HORRIBLE!!!! The Bay Bridge is closed for the weekend for repairs, so everyone was trying to get across Golden Gate. Took us almost 2 hours to do a normally 45 minute drive. It was kinda weird; there was a guest speaker who was getting just a tad too political from the pulpit for my taste, but otherwise we had a pretty good time. I was told that was not normal, and I'm pretty sure it's not. I'll be living here for a while, so I'm sure there will be many visits to Mission Bay. Anyone looking for a place of worship in the Bay Area should definitely check it out. Some very nice people over there fed us lasagna and caesar salad for dinner and there was some good conversation. Bruce (see above picture from the MBCC website) was back from his travels and I was lucky enough to run a small errand for our illustrious leader. I love how much fun us Presbyterians make of our Moderator, it's very refreshing.

So now, it's time for some red wine and 24. Good night everybody!

BTW, I appreciate you Pastor Ron!


  1. Are you going to go that far every Sunday? I thought you would all be going to a church on campus or at least the local Prebytery (sp?).

  2. No, I just wanted to see what that church was like because I've heard about it so much. I'l probably go there once in a while though.
