BOOK OF LAST RITES
Since you’re there anyway, Father, might as well do it out of pity.
Just don’t bless it with holy water.
My sister is a Methodist minister in a small rural church.. There’s a developmentally challenged young woman there who will never progress intellectually beyond a childlike state. She constantly carries with her a doll that she calls her baby. She asked my sister if she would baptize the “baby.” My sister did this during a Sunday morning service, using a simplified and abbreviated form of the actual rite. All the congregation, who knew the girl and her situation quite well, approved and were touched by the event. Some of my sister’s friends from other congregations expressed dismay and challenged the act on theological grounds. I understand both sides of this, but love that my sister acted on the side of charity rather than legalism.
Bravo for your sister!
and I repeat.. Once there was a snow man.., https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syvxfbzMg_o
You can say he is hot…(Puts on sunglasses)YYYYYYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH(theme to csi Miami plays)
Run Lio, run!
Minus nine degrees in Hartford yesterday morning. Snowmen were giving last rites to the humans.
Forty two degrees in Atlanta. It is cold to me.
Wow, a church in a comic. That’s quite rare. Either way, the priest should o a little rite for a child’s sake (even if THIS child is not exactly a saint angel).
Rest in puddle!
Gravedigger, when you dig my grave , make it shallow, so that I can feel the rain….Dave Matthews.
Old Snowy didn’t make it. But he won’t last Down Below, so let us hope he goes up to that Good Place, where he can recompose himself….
