Lets write 1,000 words on a group of people going to eat dinner but face many challenges along the way.

Even better, Anabaptists.
They are pacifistic Baptists.

In the spirit of this thread so far, perhaps an Anabaptist zombie?

It would be really interesting to write a piece of fiction, post-apocalyptic in character, that chronicled a denomination, or a certain religious sect.

It is amazing the amount of diversity contained within "Baptist" life. I just wonder what would change, doctrinally and practically, throughout a few hundred years after a catastrophe that changed life as we know it. How would interpretation change? What would happen if scholarship stopped, or there was no longer access to it?

That, to me, would be an interesting book....

hmmm... maybe this is what I will do this year.....

An Anabaptist zombie VEGETARIAN.

Or a zombie war between General and Particular Baptists, with Smyth leading off for the Generals and Gill for Particulars!

Smyth contracts Mennos and a large groups Anabaptists to beef up his side. Little does he know, they don't believe in fighting...

Unfortunately,in the Particular camp, under Gill's double predestinarian rule, debauchery reigns, as the warriors slide steadily into an antinomian view of reality!!

Not an Anabaptist, but a Zombie Francis Johnson would be awesome. During the middle of the non-war, he could start excommunicating other zombies for talking crap about his zombie wife or for "se-baptism." I suppose that is the lingering question: Do zombies self baptize?

(Smyth reminded me of Johnson, FWIW..)

He did indeed. Smyth was part of Johnson's Ancient Church in Amsterdam until -- like just about everyone else in Johnson's life -- they had a falling out. It was from there that Smyth decided to take matters in his own hands and give himself a se-baptism. You should seriously read this book about Johnson.

I might!

I know a bit about Smyth, but the books I have read mostly focused on Baptists, so Francis Johnson is just mentioned. I didn't know he was such a controversial fellow!

This thread has gotten very strange...

So does anyone else have a preliminary plot... that doesn't involve Baptists?

I have a cat who does internal monologues and a dude stuck in a tree.

Does that count?
