Ecclesia Mortis: Why Are Church Meetings So Boring? Just as parents bring toys and Cheerios to entertain their children at church, I bring the adult equivalent: essays, books, note pads. But why are church meetings so boring? Why don’t they engage? Is it my fault, or is there something more systemic about the dull monotony? Join me in this session for an excursion through various sources of boredom and pleasure ranging from classic literature to English gardens and medieval labyrinths. We’ll stay away from a thesis-driven essay full of dogmatic certainty (perhaps the root cause of my boredom at church) and celebrate intellectual exploration and mental wandering.
