Because Christian worship is not supposed to be about you.
I just hurled acrossed the room.
And for our opening hymn please turn in your hymnals to number 45637485757, "Rubber Ducky, You're the One"...
Come back, William Morris, all is forgiven.
I'll gladly take a Rothko over that. Blech.
Just an FYI - That is blue and white, not lavender and yellow. The foreground is lit by camera flash and the background is lit by incandescent light bulbs. The camera's white balance system did it's best and went in the middle, giving the flash a cooler hue than normal to compensate for the yellow from the incandescent bulbs. What you are looking at is water on the shore...probably to make you think of baptism. It's still a fail, but it's not as bad as you first thought.
Drugs are NOT the answer. Please tell the architects.
Anonymous: That is some kind of quilt or piece of "textile art," the architect is probably not to blame.
leftover weaving project from the 70's?
Bet you a dollar to a doughnut this parish has people in the procession waving those fishing poles with streamers on them.
I feel all spiritual-like.
The pulpit looks like it has sprung a leak.
I'm dizzy now.
Rothko paintings are boring and highly over-rated, but there is no point in insulting him further by associating this stuff with this waste of wool.
I just read several pages of this blog. I rolled my eyes at ugly vestments. But it is your nasty (or maybe assholish would be better word) attitude that leaves me more dismayed and disgusted than any batik, neon colored chasuble ever could. Blech.
What's really weird is that the altar looks like it's been arranged for ad orientem celebration. I can't imagine that the person who selected the frontal was responsible for that! There's evidently a civil war going on in the sacristy...
I know they aren't vestments- but where do we post photos of tacky desert scenes that find themselves in the sanctuary during Lent?
@jesseYeah. Ad orientem.I was like - WTH?
I don't think that's Catholic or Piskie. Isn't it Lutheran? The arrangement of book and basket and really big ewer makes me think ELCA, or LCMS with an Altar Society with bad taste and a quilting setting on their machines.
Bounty paper towels and napkins.........the quicker picker upper....now new and improved for altars!
It's not a Rothko, it's an Edvard Munch -It's the water from "The Scream"Marjorie
Great comment from The Underground Pewster.
But it is your nasty (or maybe assholish would be better word) attitude that leaves me more dismayed and disgusted than any batik, neon colored chasuble ever could. Blech.You are mistaken. You see, what these vestments deserve is that the priest be stripped down on the spot, the vestmensts shredded, fed to wild dogs, and the dog's poop burned.Making fun of them IS the charitable response.
This is why you don't leave some things in a car parked in the sun; they melt.
No kidding, Fr. Yousuf--I did once have to sing "Rubber Duckie" during a church service--on Easter morning, no less. To protect the innocent, though, I'm not saying where.
That, uh, dribbly thing on the pulpit--that blue and white thing trying to pass itself off as a parament--wouldn't look half bad if it were attached correctly. The upper left-hand corner from the viewer's vantage point seems to be slipping a little.Or maybe it's just trying to fall to the ground in shame.
Maybe this is in Texas in the summer with no air in the church?
But it is your nasty (or maybe assholish would be better word) attitude that leaves me more dismayed and disgusted than any batik, neon colored chasuble ever could. Blech.You are mistaken. See, bad vestments deserve to be stripped off the pastor on sight, be ripped to shreds, the shreds fed to wild dogs, and the dog's poop burned.In other words, making fun of them IS the charitable response.
I've been on facebook long enough to have been looking for the "like" button immediately after nearly (forgive me) spewing my ice tea on this one... the Rothko comment... thank you for sharing. No wonder the people of God are confused :)
