“How Catholic of you.”

Not a phrase I hear every day.  My husband said it yesterday as we were discussing my Primary class.  I’d just mentioned Correlation and how it meant that, in theory anyway, on Sunday everyone in church from Sacramento to Sao Paulo is having the same lesson.

I find his words interesting.  The Catholic church has been a large church for some time; it stands to reason that they had policies and programs in place to keep everything on an even keel.  I know that changes have been made in our church as our numbers swell.  Most prominent in my mind is the three-hour meeting block.  It’s all I’ve ever known but sometimes I wish for the old meeting blocks where Primary met during the week and the Primary teachers could attend Sunday School for themselves.

So now I’m wondering what the future will bring to the church.  What do you see?  What do you want to see?  What don’t you want to see?

I don’t want to see the end of three-hour meeting blocks.  I like the extra commitment we  give.

I would like to see a return of the annointings for pregnant women I’ve seen discussed at FMH.

*Please, let’s keep this focused on policy and programs not doctrine.  If you’d dearly love to see the church bless same-sex unions please blog about it elsewhere.  What I’m looking at here is the shift from small church to large church.
