For some time now, I’ve had a silly little fantasy. I’d start my own church: the First Church of Christ, Cabinetmaker. We’d meet on Saturday afternoons and glory in the making of things. From the crotchety handtoolers to the hipster CNC’rs, and everyone in between, all would be welcome.
The Jesus part would be optional, of course. I am Catholic, after all. The only mandatory worship would be at the sharpening stone. We’d observe only the greatest commandment: do your best not to be a dickbag, at least not all the time. And don’t borrow tools without asking.
Any early converts?
