Random Pre-Advent Dots

* Lots of rain! Yeah! We really need round here.

* I know it's hard to find purple candles for the church advent wreath when all the stores are full of red,white, gold and green-- but buying red candles and wrapping them round with purple wrapping paper simply will not work. Trust me on this, I'm a professional. Luckily, our Associate was making a visit that took her by a big Cokesbury store. We will save the red candles for Pentecost.

*New favorite word:
Ethnodoxology: the theological and anthropological study, and practical application, of how every cultural group might use its unqiue and diverse artistic expressions appropriately to worship the God of the Bible. I want to be an Ethnodoxologist when I grow up.

*Cats do not appreciate cat-sized Santa costumes you impulse-buy them at Target.

*Too bad about Evil Kneivel. He was my brother's hero back in the day.

That's all for now.

you have got to be kidding me! Oh, the humanity.

Candles wrapped with paper--could make for an interesting service.

Mind you that much flame would be much more appropriate for PEntecost...

I remember us all sitting around the TV watching Evil do what ever his latest stunt was. The man lived on borrowed time.

Catholic supply stores are the best resource here. Otherwise, nothing.

hahahah! We ended up using last year's candles out of sheer desperation--the ones we ordered from Cokesbury (our nearest store being just over 90 minutes away) did not arrive when they said they would....the first time, actually, that they have not come through for us in a pinch. However, I'm wishing we'd tried the paper option--we've been looking for innocent ways to accidentally burn the place down near Christmas as we need a new, larger building AND you get more donations (out of sympathy) at Christmas time! ;-)
