Key Question

New Hampshire usually competes year over year with Vermont and Maine as the least-churched states in the union.  Our weekly attendance rate is at approximately European levels.  So it is interesting that even here, when I go to the Saturday food charity, or the meal for the homeless on Christmas Day people who are striking up a conversation with a stranger ask "So what church do you come from?"

We know our own, without even noticing. If I pointed it out these people would be embarrassed that they might have unintentionally insulted someone.

Apparently not to worry.

Probably the fraction of Christians among servers in a food pantry is higher than the general population. But yes, sometimes you know.
