Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Feel the Burn

The Discovery Channel's Calorie Burn Rate Calculator will let you know how many calories you burn at certain activities.

There is a whole section devoted to church activities. Here is what I, as a 195 pound man, can burn in an hour:

88.4 calories for Church—Praying/meditating
132.66 calories for Church—Sitting/Singing

but those who serve in other ways burn off more calories so:

176.88 calories for Church—ushering

and if you really want to lose weight more than worship they have the category:

442.19 calories for Church—yard work

Funny, I thought I went to church to get fed, not to burn calories.

If you are worried about your weight, Taking Off Pounds Sensibly meets at King of Peace today at 9:15 a.m. If you want to get spiritually nourished, our mid-week worship service is tonight at 6:15 p.m. We'll even serve bread and wine.

The Rev. Frank Logue, Pastor + King of Peace Episcopal Church
