From time to time every ex-fundy experiences as fundamental flashback wherein they get a nostalgic sensation that that they are about to be either
a) judged (“your hair is too long!”)
b) witnessed to (“your hair is so long that I can tell you need Jesus!”)
c) recruited for something (“once you’ve gotten a haircut you can serve in the puppet ministry!”)
Today’s challenge is to share some of the triggers that send your mind back to the days when life was simpler and thinking was optional.
In no particular order some of the causes of my flashbacks have been:
The smell of hymnbook pages.
People who raise their eyebrows really, really high when they sing.
Anybody dressed in a suit and carrying a cordless phone. (PCC folks will get this one).
The words “and all God’s people said?”
Feel free to list your own…
