Because Christian worship is not supposed to be about you.
Donated by Helen Keller.
Looks like someone needs to get the cathedral cat declawed.
Anybody know what the dead flowers are for?
Do they expect our Heavenly Father to put it on His heavenly refrigerator or something?
I think that is the rug I didn't buy at Ikea.
It looks, to me, like one of those giant Dagwood deli sandwiches!
I see the no-good college-aged son of the congregational president showed up for service drunk again - this time, instead of just falling down in the aisle, he puked right on altar.
It does take something quite unusual to make ++KJS's cope fade into the background...On the plus side, the dalmatics aren't bad.
The pro-abortion "church" displays one.
The "reformation" has done wonders. Just sick.
A geologic cross section of the terrain under the church building? No? I vote for getting claw covers for the vestry cat, then.LittleRed1
The frontal is quite a fascinating piece of art though the little side draperies are a puzzlement.By contrast, it's the dull, pedestrian catalog vestments worn by the officiants that truly give offense.
38 lb. of frontal in a 20 lb. sack.
And then there's the Almy Red Coronation fabric Altar Pillow @ $197 (2010-2011 Catalog, p. 141), on which rests what looks to be a looseleaf binder, maybe 5 or 6 bucks at Office Depot.
Jackson Pollock is a great analogy :-)
one might say that it's a full on frontal assault
Aw, crap, Anon - I was coming on to type "frontal assault." Or some riff on "full frontal nudity" but I can't figure out anything witty enough. This thread has the funniest bunch of comments I've read in a long time. Every one of 'em made me laugh! Jeb's "heavenly Father's refrigerator" is my fave, I think.
prayers, prayers, prayers
Frontal? More like "Affront"-al if you ask me.
Hm. I have one of those on the floor by my kitchen sink...
Looks like the Altar Guild is now using a Troybuilt to maintain the furnishings.
Looks like that fellow in the middle is officiating at a wine bar, with all those flagons.I hope everyone had a wild time, but Katie doesn't look real happy. Perhaps she thought she should be in the middle.
It looks like something calling for a pathologist for diagnostic purposes.
"Ladies and Gentlemen, if you turn your attention to The Episcopal Church's 'Responding to the Windsor Report Flow Chart' here in front..."
Let's see. It says here we add a jigger of....
The weirdest thing is that it's sort of a curtain, with a pole slipped through a sleeve on the back. The pole seems to be hung from nails or hooks under a wooden altar. I used to work at a puppet show and that is the kind of stage we would take to kids' parties! Not the altar part, of course.
If you remove the "frontal" the pillow and the women it might not look too bad.
If I wanted to MOCK the Sacred Liturgy, this is exactly what I'd do! How long will these people be allowed to mock God?
Looks like a slab of bacon to me. Maybe they got sucked in by the latest Gaga trend?
According to the website of the diocese whose annual convention liturgy is being pictured here,"The ICC banquet hall was transformed by a glowing wooden altar and cross built for the occasion and decorated with long streamers and a shimmering prayer frontal woven as we conducted the business of convention with colorful cloth strips on which delegates and visitors had written their own prayers."
Man, I keep coming back to this site to see what's new and the cat sick frontal is still up! I would hate to go to a liturgy at that church feeling a little squeamish.
I wonder why they store all those old Persian rugs under the altar!
To midwestnorwegian: If I knew who you were, I would undertake to sue you for libel on behalf of the church. TEC has repeatedly opposed abortion in its General Convention resolutions, while taking a tolerant pastoral stance in reconciling those who, sadly, have made recourse to that heinous crime against life.That being said, this one takes the cake. Obviously the frontal that belongs to the "Mold, Mildew and Fungus" set.
It looks like someone's shower curtain.
Y'know, I never thought I'd see my old grade school nap rug again ....
"The frontal is quite a fascinating piece of art though the little side draperies are a puzzlement."Oh, its a fascinating piece alright!
It's such a shame... i really like bishop Jefferts-Schori. Perhaps I should offer my services as her chaplain/MC. Lovely lady; 98% of the times gastly vestments!
"Woven from strips of cloth on which prayers had been written"Evidently, the prayer, "Please, God, let this be the ugliest altar ever!" won.Caption: "[hic!] I know I said I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy, but now I have both! [hic!]"
what's up with all the wine BTW? That's more than one can pp?
