A Safe Church for Agnostics

Down here, when you meet someone new they ask three questions: “Where do you live,” “what do you do,” and “where do you go to church.” I have various approaches to this kind of white lie. The first approach is not to mention a church specifically. Just say, “I’m Episcopalian” or “I’m Unitarian” and change the subject.
