Oh by the way, folks,
Today we celebrate a feast day in honor of Saint Onesimus, possibly the most famous slave in Christian history. We know of him through Saint Paul's Epistle to Philemon.
It's too bad that Saint Paul miserably failed to take this opportunity to totally denounce the institution of slavery altogether. Such a denunciation woulda made a vast and lasting improvement in the newly developing Christianity.
Yesterday it rained all day, with a few dabs of snow mixed in here and there. I decided not to bother to drive up to the Washington Area Secular Humanist presento. Nothing else happened.
The base I made for the church's ceremonial gadget has been taken up to the chapel. Somehow or t'nother the preacher is gonna hafta decide whether he can make it canonically valid without stain and varnish. I suppose they've probably got some sorta altar cover that'll do.
Speaking of altar covers, since it's the First Sunday In Lent, we'll use purple altar covers. Purple is the Color Of Preparation, used primarily during Lent and Advent.
And then this afternoon it's gonna be awful cold.
Happy Purple Altar Covers!
