"I kissed the Church."
the ethiopians and eritreans are the cutest!
i cross myself when passing all churches
ok, some of the newer denominations that don't even use the word church are rather odd, but then you can pray for them 'Lord have mercy' while making the sign of the cross.
i don't make the sign of the cross when an ambulance, police car etc. go past, as i live in a big city and work in a hospital, and these things happen every few minutes. also these days it seems you don't have to be very sick to travel by ambulance.
i am moving soon to a small town, so maybe this will change.
it's good to pray for the sick and for the police etc. so you could include them all in your daily prayers.
and i live in the uk and have other friends who make the sign of the cross, so look out for us jr, you may see us one day!
i try to remember to do the sign of the cross the 'other way round' when passing an eastern orthodox church. but there are very few of these within a big radius of where i live, so i tend to forget.
if i go in, i do it the 'right way' for the EO.
nicholasmyra, you live near a coptic church, have you been in?
if not, i would like to invite you on their behalf!
i have been to an antiochian church in the uk, it was lovely.
