Presentation to my Church

I gave a presentation to my church this evening about my time in Japan.

I started by telling them that in Japan, people take their shoes off and wear slippers in church. I then took off my shoes and put my slippers on for the rest of the presentation. That was something they did not expect. I suggested that the elders and deacons ought to consider introducing a shoes-off rule here at Woodgreen Evangelical church.

One of the elders very helpfully scanned my photos and put them on a powerpoint. So I was able to show them some photos of the church and Ajigasawa. Among the photos was a photograph of a line of shoes in the church entrance-way. I also showed a picture of the church toilet with the toilet slippers.

Did you get any response to your suggestion?

It got a laugh.

While it would be a good idea, it was not meant as a serious suggestion.
