Where less is more
It's being reported the Irish media that a parish in Galway are offering a "quickie mass". By ditching all but the essentials, the congretation are in and out in 15 minutes. Apparantly attendance has increased tenfold.
Now why am I reminded of Richard Dawkins take on atheism? He asks the christian believer if they believe in Thor. Answer is no. Zeus? No. Egyptian god Ra? No. He then explains that the christian is a Thor atheist, a Zeus atheist and a Ra atheist, while he, Dawkins, just goes one god further.
If the believers of Galway really like their churchgoing short and sweet, why not just reduce it by 15 more minutes?
