The Brown Family and 'Church'


Recommended Posts

I was curious about The Brown Family and 'church'. Since on the show, Sister Wives, they refer to church and attending a church, participating in activities, etc.

On the Wikipedia site, The Brown Family is discussed and their 'church' background is that The Browns are a family belonging to the Apostolic United Brethren Church. However, while reading I discovered that the members of AUB don't use the word church or like to call it a church. It discussed that there are a few centers, located in Mexico and Utah and that there are no churches as in other faiths.

Is it interesting that The Brown Family describes it this way ?

Does anyone know about The Brown Family's 'church' ? What is was that they attended ? Or are apart of ?

Yes, they are part of the AUB. I think they were using the term church on TV because its what most people will relate to. The AUB is the most liberal Polygamily group in Utah. I think that the Browns do their own services on Sunday in their home right now.

IIRC, in the episode that showed the teenagers trying to make friends, they talked about how they didn't have a church home at the time because their denomination didn't have a congregation in Vegas, and they wouldn't be welcome at 'regular' Mormon churches. So, yeah, that pretty much leaves home churching.

      I spotted Kindle Vella on the Amazon website late last night  and I feel like this is a concept I don’t really understand. Why would I buy a book one chapter at a time? Is there a market for purchasing books this way? Is there more to this than I noticed? I also couldn’t get it to work on my Kindle app, but that is probably user error on my part.

      FB friend who was my tour director went to Spain had this map up of the new tour they're doing in Spain now.
      I think you can all guess what caught my attention right away.
      And as I am an FJ denizen the gutter my mind went into almost immediately.
      And now actually I'm a bit curious about the place too.

      I’ve had to evacuate due to all the aggressive wildfires,  Mr Kool is evacuated to the hospital because of his non mobility, hopefully they find him a bed in the local care home.  Fire sucks.

      Is there anyone else who works who feels like because things are opening up and we have our vaccines and everything we are supposed to automatically feel better despite being in shut down mode for a 1.5 years. I mean how easy is it for other people to go about their lives, like nothing has happened this past what 16 months?  I am having a hard time with this. Baby steps but what would these be?

      Baby girl was born Saturday at 9pm. She came really fast, in less than an hour. An 8 pound beautiful and super healthy princess! I'm doing okay, had a bit of respiratory issues but doing better right now.

      Random vent. I hate when random aches/pains come out of nowhere. I also hate not knowing what to do. Well, that's actually not 100% accurate. I do know, but it's hard to know when. (If that makes any sense.) 
      Have a good weekend, kids. ✌️
