We See Dead People at the Spiritualist Church of Alice

posted by Joel Gunz

Don’t interrupt me….

I’m getting a message….

It’s coming….

Coming….

The… Ancients… wish… to inform you… that this Sunday… evening, Amanda and I visited the Church of Alice, a Spiritualist community dedicated to the practice of clairvoyance, mediumship and channeling. According to their website, “Spiritualism is a rational religion based on the proven knowledge that man’s spirit survives physical death.”

Rational? Proven? Really? Stop back in a couple of days and we’ll tell you what they proved to us. We’ll also tell you who the hell Alice is.

Gnock Gnock Gnocking on the Gnostics' Door

Home PDX: A Church By Any Other Name
Yesterday, we went downtown to check out Home PDX. If you want to make head honcho Bruce Arnold, squirm, call their community a church.  The word has so many negative connotations, they'd just as soon not use it. Then again, the PDX Homeys have a different word for everything. Take the word "hom

Full-On Faith
It's been almost a year since the inspiration for this blog began with a trip to the First A.M.E. Zion Church in North Portland. It was a predominantly black church in a predominantly black neighborhood and what I wrote about it ended up being our most controversial post to date. To this day, it's a

Happy Anniversary from Emmanuel Temple Church
One year ago, Amanda and I embarked on our Year of Sundays tour of the Portland church scene. To celebrate, we decided to head back to my roots in North Portland and visit a full gospel church, just like we did in our first week of blogging. That's how we landed at Emmanuel Temple Church. Can I have
