Wesleyans Just Wanna Have Fun

The title of the post should be sung to the tune of Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” but those of you that grew up in the 1980s already knew that.

Over at Ascending Mount Carmel, Jason L. has made his second post on “If Theologians Were Beers” (part 1 & part 2). I am neither a beer drinker nor a Roman Catholic, but I enjoyed the posts. As a Wesleyan, I might have received a call from my district superintendent if I wrote such a post.  (I still might for linking to Jason’s post!)

I was once offered a glass of wine at a wedding I performed. I politely refused, but another gentleman at our table shouted, “You’re not drinking because you can’t!” Actually, I do not drink because that is my choice. I just do not want to be known as a Christian who can’t have fun or celebrate, not that fun or celebration require the consumption of alcoholic beverages, although dancing is quite celebratory.

I just think comparing theologians to beers is funny, and that Roman Catholic bloggers should not get to have all the good jokes!
