AWN-SAHM-BLEH

Remember those really tacky matching sweaters your mom forced you and your siblings to wear for the family Christmas card photo that one year?  Well, they called just now and they wanted you to know how sorry they are.

So they are literally wearing their hearts on their sleeves?

IDOT [or MODOT] work zone flagger meets the God Squad: employed to control traffic safely past road crews and to provide pastoral care when they fail.

The clergy from Star Trek.

Between room visits they can work in the cafeteria, saving the hospital some labor expense.

Pastor Schuster said...

Unhappily, those hearts on the sleeves appear to be the logo for Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, which is the result of the merger of two large Lutheran fraternal benefit societies.

I can't for the life of me imagine why the logo, if indeed that is what this is, is affixed to these hideously-colored 'clergy' shirts, as, to my knowledge, Thrivent does not sell clergy apparel.

Sigh. Yet another reason for me to be embarrassed about being a Lutheran pastor. As if I didn't already have enough...

Christopher Johnson said...

They're not Lutherans.

Tancred said...

Maybe they can unite their superpowers and bring Thrivent to a more ecumenical place?

Would you like fries with that?

Fr. Caleb said...

Relax,pastor. This has nothing to do with Christianity. It is an Almy creation for a Universalist-Unitarian convention. What's missing is a snappy matching hat.

Lovely Sunny Delight vicars!

The Rev. M. Forbes said...

Who makes these? I need one for next haloween

Is this the garb of a new age religious order?

As an aside, what happened to the mystical, magical new bishop of Washington? Did she complain? Did the entry self destruct? I know her and am glad she is elsewhere.

You know in the first Star Trek the guys wearing those colored shirts were inevitably the first ones to get phasered or eaten by nasty aliens. I think the phasers are set to stun just by looking at those shirts too long.

At least the mustard stains won't show.

Fr Theodore said...

Indeed, what happened to the Washington DC photo? It certainly deserved its place here.

And I was wrong when I said that the Tenn. Vols didn't have a prayer this year...

Saffron. I'm sure the Dali Lama approves....

Someone please contact the Enterprise, and beam these two up (no intelligent life...).

And Underground Pewster, TN Vols still are dead in the water. That ain't TN orange, either.

So,these are the new offical ac/na uniforms?

The wrong color for a mountain search party, but only just.

What happened between November 7 and December 20? I seem to recall a pic of the new bishopess of WADC in her finery, but it has disappeared!
Was it copyrighted or something?

amazing cope of many colors, as I recall. Can you bring it back?

The hearts bespeak what's most important to these folks...themselves.

Dixie Forever said...

Someone beat me to it with the Wonder Twins. Is that the "Unsacred" Heart they are wearing?

Greg Winston said...

I think these questionable shirts are the design of the UUA, something they call the Standing on the Side of Love campaign. Almy must be making them for them. Found this on almy.com http://www.almy.com/HotSpotBlank.aspx?HotSpot=SOSA

They have cornered the market on attracting the bumblebee demographic is the latest evangelism effort.

I feel bad for the clergy that have to wear the red shirts.

I bet they could fix my muffler.

In the original Episcoal church, these would have been the shirts of command officers. In Episcopal church: The Next Generation, this color was relegated to priests in the engineering section.
