Curious Goldie Goes to Church*

"When my friends and I first converted to Christianity in the late 80’s – early 90’s in Russia, we were all about joking and laughter. We grew up on C.S. Lewis. So, when I came here, I had some expectations about the Evangelical community as a society where intellect and sense of humor were high priority. Instead, to my horror, I saw this… unfunny crowd! Is that the way you’re supposed to be if you’re Evangelical? If you asked me a month ago, I would have said yes. Now, after briefly reading IM, JollyBlogger and a few other Christian blogs, I’ll say – no, not really. --Curious Goldie

I've known Goldie online for awhile--she's is an intelligent, interesting woman (and great translator!)--and has just started blogging.

In a recent post, she touches on the disenchantment she found in the Evangelical subculture in the US. Interestingly, the online Christian community and blogs in particular have given her new hope.

Be sure to check Curious Goldie's Suburban Adventures regularly. I can guarantee it'll be thought provoking.

*I just couldn't resist a H.A. Rey allusion, even if the title doesn't quite fit the post.
