A fine write Gary.
On imagination, I saw a notice, tucked away a bit: \"There is no poo fairy; please clean up after your dog\'. Doh!

In one church, rather preaching to the \'converted\', in the sense of \'we already know all that\', it\'s as though some may reply to the Minister: \'Yes, but we wish you wouldn\'t remind us EVERY time\'. A \'fire and brimstone\' preacher.
That\'s a true definition of a \'Bible-basher\' I think, bashing the congregation over their heads with the Bible - not literally though!

Touch and Smile
orchidee said:

A fine write Gary.
Hmm - the question of touch/ hugs / etc in churches? The handshake at the \'Peace\' when \'normality\' resumes\'? Or cries of \'Arrgghhh - no!\'
For a couple of weeks before church closures, we bowed like monks or nuns to each other during the Peace!

Angela Here - Good afternoon Gary thanks for sharing your STORY ! COVID 19 & Lockdown is affecting us all in different ways and we have to be thankful for small mercies & very limited contact. Im a PHYSIO in a Big Hospital - none or my Clients are COVID positive - but its depressing because people (mainly over 50s) are dying every day - but we are winning & the tide is TURNING ! My HUSBAND BRIAN (of five weeks) is under LOCKDOWN so he is a House Husband & doing all the Chores & the Garden etc - Role Reversal. CORVID 19 has spared the Flora & Fauna so the BLUEBELLS are out this week (Please check our poem - BLUEBELLS) Thanks !

Blessings & Peace & Joy
Love Angela & Brian 💛💛💛

Passing Lane Only
orchidee said:

Some naughty drivers are speeding, with less traffic on the roads. I reported a couple of bus drivers. Can\'t have people being thrown off buses - by braking hard, I mean.
Some are sneaky - drive off before you sit down, then they laugh up their sleeve if you fall over! heehee. It\'s awful.
Most are OK though. At least we still have public transport going.

Day Thirty-Six
orchidee said:

Well, we\'ve taken (or some churches have) to partaking at a distance. Call up an online Eucharist Service, and be ready with bread and wine/juice at home.
It\'s all we can do for now!

The banana leaves, by the way, would have been the natural alternative to the toilet paper, or ‘The Sun’ for that matter, the toilet paper alternative that you just suggested. 🤣🤣😞

World Pandemics
Immortal101 said:

Most of them seem to have apparently died of the high pressure of oxygen being given on the ventilator to treat the Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, a condition that is arising from multiple causes and NOT one, as is the song being sung by the mainstream media of the scandalous illusion of pandemic.

His Kind of Repentance
orchidee said:

Yes, a fair write Gary, without being \'hell-fire and brimstone\'. (What is brimstone? oops!).
Certainly aspects, areas of our lives where repentance may be needed, at this crisis season, and any season.
I read a book by Metropolitan Anthony Booth - bit deep! (Your double?!). But he brings out that prayer of requesting mercy. The blind man did not pray \'Heal me\', though he sought that too.

Shelter At Home
orchidee said:

Oh lol - if seeing humorous side of this.
Use [insert name of trashiest newspaper in your country] instead. In UK, it could be \'The Sun\' newspaper.
And it\'s a diet of bamboo leaves for you now then?!

Through Her Eyes
orchidee said:

A fine write Gary.
Ain\'t come across many (or any?) air conditioned churches in U.K. I\'m getting old. One of my first considerations, though not that spiritual, if going to a church is \'will it be warm enough - the building; well, the people too?!\'
It sure is a bit of self-denial if sitting though services in chilly buildings. I don\'t take up my \'cross\' sometimes - I go elsewhere warmer. Tut tut! But it\'s not wise to do. One cannot focus, getting chillier by the minute, then actually feeling ill with it.

Ungrateful Son
orchidee said:

It\'s certainly a \'Lent feeling\', the world over. 40 days of it for Jesus, plus miserable temptings from the evil one. Would we have given up, turned the stones into bread, etc? Yet all in God\'s overall purposes. \'Soon shatter Satan under our feet\' was a line of a prayer in an Anglican/Protestant book.

White Washed Sepulcher

Back seat joy rides were fun, very lovely scenery! The country side, so much better than the urban jungle!

Smilez!!

White Washed Sepulcher
orchidee said:

A nice write Gary. I thought it was gonna be a \'hell-fire\' theme of a poem, where Jesus denounces religious leaders of his day: \'White washed sepulchres\'.
Erm, I (in UK) did not see any cattle grazing - swans, geese, and ducks took over some fields, thinking they are lakes in the flooding in some areas.

Muscle Cars
orchidee said:

That\'ll teach \'em, if they judge by outward appearance, if you turn up in one of those at church!
Don\'t ya dare cough, or hardly breathe, in some places, where it says \'silence\' in the service! Then again, are some them alive in there even? Doh!

Loved it!
Now keep in mind muscle cars aren\'t only for mid life men, some ladies drive them too! *C✌

A person I know might call a Saint \'Naughty Newman\' now, for \'defecting\'! Oohh!

A good Haiku Gary. I\'m not into asking Saints to pray for us, though it is in some Anglo-Catholic Churches too.
