Last Sunday the sermon was on our stewardship of God’s dominion. When I went up to receive communion, I noticed that the label on the altar’s kneeler said “made in china” and “100% foam rubber”. Canonically speaking, the proper filler for a kneeler is the hair from a virgin, white mare. Now I realize that the probability of any sort of virgin mare running around China is low but couldn’t they have some labelling system like certified organic. I prefer to contemplate the eternal and reducing my carbon footprint knelling on the product of His bounty rather than chemically modified petroleum by-products.
P.S. If you’re into arcane Academic humour, the Latin quote is also the motto of a well known theological seminary
