Church! Passion! Skanky Girls!

Team Tyre had a busy weekend, as USUAL, and we capped it off with Sunday night worship at Passion City Church. For those of you not familiar, PCC opened it’s doors on May 15th, and it is awesome. Surely you’ve heard of Louie Giglio? Chris Tomlin? JESUS?

No? Well, check out their website and listen to the sermons, cause they ROCK. JD told me before we went that in NO WAY were we going to make a habit of going every Sunday. It’s downtown, for crying out loud! Moon told me before we went that she wanted to go EVERY SUNDAY, cause the kids actually meet in tents. Tents, inside the kids area, instead of separate rooms. I’m sure there must be something wrong with it, because it looks like way too much fun to be biblical. I’m not sure how often we’ll actually get to go, but I hope it’s a bunch. On the one hand, I really like my church, on the other, I got to sleep IN. Hello?

I’ve been looking forward to visiting Passion City all week, in part because I love Louie Giglio’s sermons, but also because I knew I would get to hang with some of the Church Ladies. Do you know that my friend Mantamy HATES it when I call her a Church Lady? She thinks it makes us sound like this:

Although I think my side ponytail and scrunchy is about to make a comeback.

We need a new term for ladies that do church and frankly, I’m just the person to think of one. You many not know this, but I’ve coined two, new phrases over at the Urban Dictionary. True Story. I came up with “Skankini” which is a tankini worn by a skanky girl, (as in, Look at that Skankini! You can see her butt tattoo!) and “Slanghai” which is when someone steals your slang and claims it as their own. (My mother keeps telling everyone she came up with Skankini! She totally slanghai’d my word!)

So I’ve been trying to think of a new term to describe women who love Jesus, but don’t wear denim jumpers. Here’s a few of my favorites:

Faithful Femmes


Church Chicks

Bible Babes

the Christies

the SisterGood of the Traveling Saint

I know what you’re thinking, these are ALL good.  Being super creative has its drawbacks – I just can’t choose. Take the poll and help me decide, or if you think you have a better idea leave a comment and I’ll add it. The winner gets a used tankini from 2002. Wearing it with a butt tattoo is strictly prohibited.

  1. You are both horrible and awful.

    My term for the people you call your “church ladies” is “MY FRIENDS.” Except now for you. I call you “Horrible and awful.”

  2. I’m trying to REBRAND Christian Ladies – My Friends is too vague and Horrible and Awful is taken.

    Holy Felines sounds catty.

  3. we are beyond words! i can’t imagine that even you – miss creativity that you are – will ever devise adequate words to describe us.

  4. If “my friends” is too vague, I’m going with “Friends of Lisa” or FoL. I don’t care what you think.
