church listing

I'm not quite sure what I did with my kindle in the move... of course, I also can't say I've looked. Anyhow, this situation has inspired me to post info on churches to visit here so that I can access it from any online device. I realize that one issue I have with going to church on Sundays-- in addition to plain lack of motivation-- is lack of a plan. If I had a church home, it would be understood that I would wake up and go there. For me, it's more like tackle that question on Saturday and then wonder details like what time they start. I *think* I started collecting start times in my kindle but until we are reconnected, here I go again:

1. Gay Pentecostal Church meets in the afternoon. Will have to acquire details again.
2. Open Heart Spiritual Center. Now meeting at: Leadership Memphis Gallery, 363 S. Main- Memphis, TN 38103. Meditation at 9:30am, Celebration Service 10am.
3. Old Salem Baptist Church, 368 Buntyn Street, 323-9041, Rev. Jack Carpenter on Bunton near Orange Mound, near Central Ave
4. Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, 2634 Carnes Ave, (901) 324-6771
5. One Faith Christian Center (default), 5141 Easley, 11am
6. New Direction Christian Church (default): 10:30am, 6120 Winchester Rd
7. Holy Trinity UCC, 685 S. Highland Street, 11am

13. My dad's old church- have to find my notes of where that is. 
14. Freedom's Chapel Christian Church, 961 Getwell Rd, 901-244-7661
15. MS Blvd Christian Church
16. Gifts of Life Ministries, 8am, 3381 Raleigh-Millington Road
17. Binghampton UMC (formally Everett UMC)
18. Lindenwood Christian Church
19. Cathedral of Praise, 561 S. Prescott, , 12:30pm.
20. Unity Church of Christianity, 3345 McCorkle Road, 11am
21. First Presbyterian Church, 166 Poplar Avenue, 11am
22. Living Word Chrisian Church, 1015 S. Cooper Street, 10am
23. Christ City Church
24. Unity Church of Practical Christianity, 9228 Walnut Grove, 10:30am
25. Salem Gilfield Baptist Church, 3176 Kimball Avenue, 11am. Because Pastor (?) Stanford Hunt invited me at an event for the homeless and I was glad to see him there. 

Also, it's occurred to me that I can have some default churches to attend when no other plan is in place. Lady B would love for me to join her at her church. My current commitment is First Sundays but yes, it can help me reach my 2-3 visits per month quota. New Direction Christian Church is a place that I'm fond of in many ways and used to listen to faithfully online. In fact, I think I'll listen to them this morning. And One Faith Christian Center is pastored by a relative and has quite an enjoyable and inspiring service. Look at that-- my default churches can fill my 3 visits per month by themselves. 

Wow. That list is bit, or lot, longer than I anticipated. I guess I have some places to go!

October plans

July brought storms with my dad's death and a burglary and the break down of my relationship with what was close paternal family.

August is a bit of a blur. I suspect I spent a lot of time taking care of dad's affairs. I also contacted my landlord and stated intent to vacate at the end of September.

September, I moved out of my apartment and in with Lady B. The move is to be temporary while I clean out/unpack/set up my house. September, her mom died.

October, my intention is/was to wind down a bit, to sit and enjoy a bit of life. It started with a funeral but there are many days left to see what comes. Some things that I do want to experience this month are:
1. Have ice cream with my youngest nephew, Kashe
2. Have my car detailed, shampoo included
3. Tea, spanakopita, and chat with James and possibly Tre (and Lady B) at the place on Germantown Parkway
4. LezBiFriends Event
5. Mini-vacation with Lady B. Currently talking about Hot Springs.
6. Pedicure
7. Dye my hair (semi-permanent)
8. Take the family to Jasmine's Thai
9. Take Lady B on a date
10. Double date with niece +1
11. Schedule a meal with my paternal cousins :)
