Jesus wants me for a sunbeam

Well it does to the people who post here... dispassionate and reasoned debate, with a good deal of humour thrown in for good measure.

Wow
on the silentnights website you can TWO nativity sets for the price of one! One contemporary and one traditional! By the looks of the picture - they are life size! Only £89!
uh oh!

I'll 'Doc' you now then! If Jesus wants you for a light up nativity set, its a new topic (but does it fit in 'Liturgy Matters'?) :)

Mithras wrote:No, seriously, he does; at least I've just found out that it is requested for a funeral on Monday at 10.00am, along with "I heard the voice of Jesus say". Any chance of a copy of both or either from anyone? PDFs will be destroyed, with great pleasure, at precisely 10.55am.

Deus in ajdutorium meum intende

So, Mithras, which tune did you decide on for "I heard the voice" in the end? Enquiring minds want to know. :lol:

Well, it was partly my fault that we went off to begin with. <breast-beating off>

People seem to have forgotten that I sanctioned all this off-topic stuff back on page 1. I don't know; mod 'em and they complain; give them some rope and they mod themselves... (mutter, mutter)

That must be a function accessable on the Mac, I can't find it on the PC. :lol:

Drifting back on to religious objects of questionable taste... the Ship of Fools website has a section called 'Gadgets for God'. How about the knitted Last Supper...

No - even these couldn't induce me to learn to knit! :D

More seriously, an increasing number of parishes have a knitted Holy Family and Three Kings that stay in a different house in the parish each night during Advent and then reappear in the church at Christmas/Epiphany as appropriate. Helps to bring preparing for the Nativity alive for the younger members of the Church.

Yes, actually. I'm merely reporting what a significant number of parishes in this part of the world are doing, not saying I agree with it. But the numbers are increasing.

I've often wondered why churches don't project an image of the Nativity scene onto their roof. Would it be very expensive?
Speaking of statues I could not help connecting the sunbeam with the arrow piercing St Teresa. The really awful sculpture, which used to be round a corner in St Peter's Rome, is of Luther being trampled under foot!
