Something for Monday


Some of you mat have seen this before, I hadn’t. Maybe next we have official business and someone is intent on invocations, I should try something if the kind.

    I suspect that if more faiths did this kind of things the invocation practice would eventually end. lol

    Also this pagan stuff sounds like a joke…I need talking snakes, people made out of ribs, and virgin births for a religion to sound half way believable!

    I can’t decide if this was someone sending up the commission, or dead serious. They looked intensely bored/uncomfortable, and well they should. A ‘christian’ convocation would have been fine for them, although equally boring, but familiar.

    Your bread, my brand of peanut butter, yes indeed.

    There were no captions. If he is conducting a pagan prayer, were there no persons willing to enter the captions? Perhaps we need more variety in the beliefs of those captioning events! 🙂 Naked hugs!

    I am disappointed nobody has demanded the right to invoke MY gods, the Aztec pantheon. Maybe THAT is why there has been so much rain in California this year. The sun has been weakened by the lack of suitable human heart sacrifices!

    I can’t figure out if the guy was serious or taking the piss.

    On the other hand, I can’t ridicule him entirely. In Aotearoa New Zealand, a Karakia (prayer) is often performed at the commencement of important meetings and ceremonies. They can contain elements from Māori tradition, Christian tradition, be entirely secular, or contain elements from several traditions. It’s ceremonial and can be deeply moving. It’s something that I personally appreciate and value.
