Vicar of The Orks!

I’m currently at the point in my curacy where you contemplate the future and a possible new post somewhere else.  Bryony sent me this instagram photo via twitter simply entitles “Is this a job for you?”

Yes.

Naming a Child Lucifer

The eChurch blog linked to an interesting article about naming children.  It think it has sparked interest over there because three people have been turned down whilst trying to call their child ‘Lucifer’.  Here is a more telling quote from the article:

one little girl christened Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii was so traumatized by the name that she had it legally changed at age nine.

As with most topics, there is no way I can come up with commentary as erudite or accurate as this!

Extreme Vicaring

Each venue auditioned an average of 14 vicars taking into account: a) their willingness to hold an alternative service, b) their experience in working in varied environments and c) their ability to hold mass at fifty plus miles per hour.

I think I could say mass at a bit more than 50mph. Where’s the challenge in that?

ASBO Jesus Rocks!!

Jon from ASBO Jesus posted on my Facebook wall saying “I’ve done an ASBO portrait of you”. I spent an hour or so looking for enough Internet connectivity to have a look.

Wealth and fame, a Jedi craves not these things!

(hope this works, I’m next to Hadrian’s wall using my phone to try and post this)

Post-Christendom

@unvirtuousabbey posted this on twitter.  I could write you a few thousand words about post-christendom or I could let it speak for itself.
