Is the name of the church relevant? The name of the denomination? No to both.
Did the church host a relevant event? Yes, but be careful of FA here.

Astronomic occurrence: solstices, equinoxes, eclipses, conjunctions, comets etc. Anything like this relevant? Not those specifically. I'm not sure whether you'd really call it an "astronomical occurence" but OTRT at the very least.
Object: one specific object? Two specific objects A type of object? An object bigger than: a breadbox? Yes for both. Car? Yes for one, probably not for the other;. The Earth? One's bigger than the Earth, the other definitely isn't.

Did they host a skygazing event? Discuss the "star that guided the Wise Men?" Or anything else biblical? Discuss the planets (which are named for Roman gods)? The space program?

"Sun worship"? "Sun mass"? Did it describe an event? An activity? A schedule? Was there more than one relevant word after "Sun"? Were there any before?

Re: [gregoryuconn] Christians and the Pagans *SUNDOWNED*

Postby gregoryuconn » Tue Jan 29, 2019 1:44 am

"Sun worship"? Bingo "Sun mass"? Did it describe an event? An activity? A schedule? And bingo to these. Was there more than one relevant word after "Sun"? Were there any before?

****SPOILER****

There is a church near my apartment that has a sign on the board outside saying

SUN WORSHIP
9:30 AM

For a long time I thought it was a Pagan temple and they were actually doing sun worship. Then I realized it meant Sunday and felt like an idiot.


Good job everyone, and be sure to check out my other puzzles, especially the drinking one which hasn't had some love in a while.[/b]
