Jones Family Reunion 1929


Noticed how the men are lined up on one side and the women liked up on the other? That reminds me of old time religions, which, since this is the old times, probably had an influence.

Back then in the Methodist and maybe the Baptist, the different genders would sit on opposite sides of the church, and even had different doors to enter and leave.

That looks like it would be hard to court, if that was your purpose to attend church. And forget about holding hands.

If you look at the picture in detail you can easily see that I am wrong about the sexes being segragated. Well, yes, but the exceptions are very old people and very young people - the young girl, was nine year old in that picture, my future mother-in-law.

Hasidic Jews still gather in segregated groups. It is interesting, although I am glad I am not participating.

Suzanne,
Maybe in the old testament says worshiping should be a sexual segragated thing.
