A Year of Sundays

THAT ONE TIME WHEN I SPENT A YEAR GOING TO CHURCH SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO.  Once upon a time, a now-ex-girlfriend and I hit up a different church each week. Afterward, we each wrote a blog post about it, separately, sort of like Siskel and Ebert. Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Spiritualist, Buddhist and beyond, we didn't care. We just dropped by with notepad, camera and three kids in tow. Our relationship didn't stand the test of time, but I'm happy to say my writing does. It was a fun, cathartic project.
