Good Christian Brunching

There's a new TV show called GCB. It's a bit like Hope Floats meets Desperate Housewives.  "GCB" stands for Good Christian B-tches. Now, if you're a person who gets offended when someone says "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas" I can tell you right now - you will HATE this show. I believe God happens to have a clever sense of humor, so I am wildly amused by the fun poked at the stereotyping of many things that I am/have been at times: Southern, blond, hypocritical and closed-minded about religion. The show is hysterical, and as my friends gathered yesterday to celebrate Easter together, it was referenced a few times. 




If like me, you're a Christian without a church home you know that Easter can be a bit of a challenge (especially if you don't live near your family and/or your spouse has tickets to the O's game). You feel like it's wrong to pop into a church just because it's Easter (and if you watch GCB you know the Don't-Miss-a-Sunday types will accuse you of just coming to show off your Easter outfit anyway).




At the same time, you still want to mark the holiday. So, what's a girl to do? 



Well, first you make a brunch reservation....


then you find a church nearby and become so sweetly surprised when the strangers there greet you so warmly.  That's how I spent Easter yesterday - with really good friends, at a beautiful church in Washington, where a very life-applicable message on Second Chances was offered. While there I was reminded of just how much I appreciate the rituals of church, and the sense of renewal that returns instantly, even inside a sanctuary you have never been in before...and may never be in again.




After the service, our group settled in for a little GCB-ing of our own...


Good Christian Brunching! While there, I was reminded of just how much I appreciate the fun and loyal friends that bless my life.  


And the people said...amen.

What a wonderfully stylish Easter. I LOVE GCB. It has inspired me to tease my hair more and wear bigger accessories. I went to lunch at the NM cafe on Friday in honor of my new fav show. Now to get my hands on a large fire arm.

Look at you!!!! You couldn't be any cuter in your darling outfit. And that hat! I'm glad you had such a fantastic Easter. I didn't think I'd like it, but I'm hooked on GCB. I think it's hysterical! Especially Carlene and Ripp. Loved the hunting party last week. ;-)
