    You ain’t said nothing but a word with black churches. I when I was younger, my mother made me go to the family baptist church and it’s probably the reason why I will never voluntarily go to another black church. I made the decision to convert over to Catholicism and now I can at least get my sermons in a smooth 10-15 mins, get some bread, good wine and be on my merry way. However, I did blackside when I was dating my then boyfriend and went to his family church. I should have said no, but decided to be a good girlfriend and went . I was a dumbass for going because there were so many red flags. It was a country church that was off the main paved road, the congregation was nothing but his family, the pastor’s wife cranked up the piano at 11am, the sermon was full of ‘PREACH’, ‘take your time passor’ and the famous, ‘WELL…..’. The main thing that had me ready to go was when my then boyfriend’s aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer and they tried to do a hands on healing with Winn Dixie olive oil -_-

    Everything was FINALLY over at 20 mins to 3. I will never do that ever again in life!!!

    Honestly, going to a black church is a test of endurance and I don’t understand how come we didn’t receive medals or some kind of recognition for doing so. I await the day for the International Olympic Committee to have this as a sport.

    I’ve grown up in a Catholic church and I can tell these researchers only went to White Catholic churches. The Black ones were just as much of an all-day affair as the Black Protestant churches. My family is from Haiti and I know that my fellow classmates and friends who were from other West Indian islands had very similar stories in terms of the length of church services. It was almost like a full shift at work, easily starting at 9 AM and finishing at around 3 PM. You knew it was a good day if it could finish at around 2 PM. The priests must’ve been tired themselves if they were finishing that early. When my family moved to our house and we found a church nearby, we were absolutely shocked, flummoxed, and flabbergasted when we went to our first service (on Easter, no less!) and it was only an hour! When we got home, I honestly didn’t know what to do with so much time left in the day. Sleep? Eat? Cause a ruckus? The possibilities were endless (but not really because, c’mon, I live with some Black people from the islands). I thought, “Wow, these white people really get to the point!” However, in recent years, as there have been new priests coming and going, especially for the first few years of their orders, the church has gotten Black priests, particularly priests from other countries, like the West Indies or from a country in Africa. Those services had been noticeably longer and longer. I kept noticing how into their homilies that they were getting, especially during the mid-day service when there was more time and it would go from 1 hour to 1 hr and 15 mintues, to 1 hr and 30 minutes, etc. Don’t get me wrong, that’s still a very short time to what I had in the past but I was spoiled and had gotten used to the service only going a certain time so I wouldn’t die of hunger. I had to make plans to go to the 8 AM service because there was definitely a time limit to that so they could get ready for the next service and wouldn’t lollygag for 2+ hours and I’ll have the rest of the day to myself again. Like Brooklyn Shoe Babe said, in and out in about an hour.

    Wellll! You don’t hear me, though! Now listen…can I get an amen?! Amen, yes, thank you congregation.

    You had me on the floor laughing talking about Black Churches–Same amount of words but damn near 4 times as long. lol. Ain’t that the truth. Please don’t let it be an Easter service. *smh* The service is one hour long before the preacher even show up to speak. When I was married and my children were toddlers, we went to church on Easter. Service started at 12 p.m. but we got up at 9 a.m. to get there by 11 a.m. so we could stand in line and put the babies in the nursery and get good seats. Long story short, because I had to get the babies and myself ready for church and the babies were being uncooperative, we didn’t get to church until after 11. Our seats ended up being all the way in back in the balcony. (The church was a former movie theater.) It was so warm in there, I was so tired from wrangling those babies, and the service was so long that I feel asleep. Not a dose, not a quick head nod, but a full on sleep complete with snoring. MY. HUSBAND. DIDN’T. TALK. TO. ME. FOR. TWO. WEEKS. because he was angry. Jesus forgave me before he did. Lol.

    Now, I go to a quiet Presbyterian church. In and out in an hour including the communion.

    Hey Rod and Karen! The portion of the podcast where you were talking about the church sermons brought back many memories of my childhood. I grew up in church, and as the grand daughter of the bishop/pastor we would be in church FORRREEEEVVER! The amount of hours spent in church on a Sunday would like you said amount to being at work for a whole day. Especially if there were multiple services. I will say knowing how to play the tambourine is something that you learn to entertain yourself while you are a child because talking and passing notes during the service was highly frowned upon. The old man with the “Well” in the church that I grew up in was normally a deacon.. or my dad who would use it to signify that he was still awake cause deacons even fall asleep during the sermons too. Lastly to clarify the confusion about Protestant and Baptist. Protestant is the opposite of Catholic. Basically the Catholic church split back in the days of the reformation during the 16th century creating the protestant faith which led to there being multiple denominations, which include Baptist and Pentecostal. I hope that helps. I love the show and the Reading Rainbow portions I’ve got so many new books to read. Thanks for the great content!

    For your next white people news can I make a suggestion of a black cover? Wind Blow by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. I think this is one of the best ones there is. And bonus Fleetwood Mac couldn’t get any whiter lol!
