Methodists and their crazy fun ideas

All is bright.

A Methodist church hosted the "Beer and Carols" event at the bar.

But that wasn't the strange part of the night.

There's nothing quite like singing "O Little Town of Bethlehem" while drinking craft beer beneath a bank of televisions airing college football bowl games.

But that wasn't the strange part.

When the last song warning was given, people at two tables began trash talking one another because one wanted to sing "White Christmas" (not even part of the song list) and the other was in the mood to belt out "Good King Wenceslas."

That was strange, yes, but it wasn't the strangest part of the evening.

When the lights dimmed and people held up their cell phones and waved them over their heads while singing "Silent Night" -- that was the strangest part of the evening.

We're all hoping there will be a second annual sing-along next year.


  1. Ha, that sounds pretty fun actually.

  2. Well, John Wesley wrote instructions in the beginning of the hymnal to "sing lustily and with good courage," and with that in mind, singing at a bar just seems to make good sense.

    Once upon a time, I had a Zippo app on my phone. I should think that would have been an improvement on just the cell phones by themselves.
