More Anglican Humor

Stalling for time while I incubate my next real entry. Also, promised never to blog when angry.

So here's a joke instead:

Jesus said to the Episcopalians, "Who do you say that I am?"

They replied, "You are the eschatological manifestation of the ground of our being, the kerygma of which we find the ultimate meaning in our interpersonal relationships."

And Jesus said, "What?"


  1. Har har har--you 'palians and your vocabulary--you put us evangelical Christianezers to shame!

  2. About that having your own agenda thing: when poeple do things (in the name of the Lord) that are actually not part of the Lord's agenda (just their own agenda), it is using the Lord's name in vain--a clear violation of the 3rd commandment(I just listened to Andy Stanley on this--pretty much addresses using our Christianity for ANYTHING other than His will). Makes me want to pray again over all my plans at church, Lordy! On the flip side, the fear of mismanagement of what is God's incopacitates other people--as in the parable of the talents. Personally, I think the bigger problem is that people don't study the Bible apart from their politics and they try to incorporate their cultural mores into the Word. Make it work rather than digging in to see what in the world God is talking about. Granted, it is very difficult to go into the Word without all the background info of our lives. I really have no answer, just these observations. Ahh all the little wars of the spirit. Tis not a simple conversation.

  3. Speaking as one who has some Episcopalian blood flowing through the body of this spiritual mutt, I find this hilarious! I don't completely understand it, but I get the gist. Sometimes we get so theologically-minded, that we are of no or real earthly good. We major on the minor nuances and begin to lose our salty relevance. Thanks for this. The picture is fun too.
