Dungeon Prompts: Take Me to Church

 This week’s prompt is: Take Me to Church

“The only heaven I’ll be sent to
Is when I’m alone with you
I was born sick, but I love it
Command me to be well
Amen. Amen. Amen

Take me to church”

– Hozier

 Today’s Prompt:

We’ve all heard the expression, “you took me to church,” meaning you gave it your all and I was feeling the spirit. But people experience the colloquial church in many different ways.  Some experience it during Football Sundays, or with music or dance, or in a relationship.  While others may experience it in an actual church, temple, mosque, synagogue or in nature.  This week tell us about what takes you to church.  If you are writing about your place of worship, then tell us what part of the experience puts you over the edge. Is it the sermon?  The music?  The testifying? Or are there other life experiences that, although may not be outwardly religious, fill you with incomparable joy.

The article that you link to this prompt should be a new post written specifically for this assignment. 

Dungeon Prompts can be a vehicle for us to open up the abandoned rooms inside ourselves and dust them off a bit.  Take the prompt, explore the recesses of your mind, and get back with a poem, story, essay or creative offering.  Link your post to this specific prompt page and I’ll share your link back with our readers.

To participate, all you’ll need to do is:

1.            Tag your post with: “DungeonPrompts”

2.            Link back to this page in the body of your post *

3.            Dive deep within and give us a glimpse of your soul!**


*note: If the pingback doesn’t work, then please leave the link to your post in the comment section.

**If you don’t have a blog please feel free to join the discussion in the comment section

Be sure and come back to check out the other prompt contributors throughout the week. Comment on their posts and let them know what you think.  Together we can help create a community of great writers and honest seekers.  We are a mad blend, let us honor the wisdom within.

    1. I can’t “like” your post on your page… so I’m “loving” it here! My sentiments are in your post comments, but just to reiterate; this is a very moving contribution that I deeply enjoyed reading.

  1. This is going to be a fun one to write. I knew what I would write about the instant I read the prompt. I love the video you put to go with it. It gave me another component.for my post-to-be!

    1. yes-yes-yes… I’m right with you, Karuna! As soon as I saw this prompt, the words rushed over me. I couldn’t get to a computer fast enough, so I jotted my notes as I ironed this morning. Lol… properly completed post coming soon!

      1. I haven’t written anything down although I probably should do it soon. But I won’t forget the pieces………

        I look forward to reading yours.
