I know you’ve seen this one before. There is nothing new under the sun. Everything is just like the wheel, but reinvented in different sizes, shapes, colours etc.
Talking of unrelated things, Advent seems to have become the season for bad religious memorabilia. Various websites have gone to the trouble of gathering it together:
The young Anglicans in Canada have The Cavalcade of Bad Nativities.
[Update: It turns out that the above Cavalcade of Bad Nativities was inspired by this earlier Cavalcade of Bad Nativities on GoingJesus. To confuse matters, this latest GoingJesus Cavalcade of Bad Nativities seems to feature some nativities from the aforementioned second Cavalcade of Bad Nativities, which in turn used some nativities from the first Cavalcade of Bad Nativities.]
Dean at the Heal Your Church Website is currently on day 3 of 12 Days of Jesus Junk.
…and of course the people who (probably) started it: Ship of Fools: The 12 Days of Kitschmas.
Talking of Ship of Fools, the pictures from their recent ecclesiastical pub crawl following in the steps of the Bishop of Southwark are on line: It’s what we did – the Southwark Pilgrimage. Mrs W and I went along at the end heavily disguised as ourselves so as not to get into the photographs. I came away with a box of Anglican fudge. Not quite sure how.
Finally, another great article on the Ship: Steve Tomkins – When Santa met Darwin.
I’m filing this under ‘Saturday links’. Future generations need never know that today has been a Monday.
