Nice to see you all still don't take yourselves seriously in SID!
I have GOT to get me one of those "Geek Orthodox" shirts.
Buetow said he wore it for you. But under further questioning said it had nothing to do with you.
Hey, I'll even take a Geek Orthodox one!
Makes me hungry for some gyros and baklava. Or even better, this chicken breast dish they had in this private Greek club I kinda sorta fell into in when I was in London (long story, don't ask).I know Halloween is coming up but is there a reason why a mitre is worn with daily "clerical" garb?
The miter was a joke gift from Pr. Curtis's mom - she makes vestments - and he thought that if President Scharr kept it in his office, it would remind him of the common office we share as episcopoi of the Church. He reminded us all before he handed over the miter that as Lutherans we teach a unitive office.
That's cool. Context is everything!
I'm wondering how Lutherans would react if a similar play on words (this time on "Lutheran") was done on a t-shirt for another group.
Jimbo,At least one Orthodox (Chris) wants one! I think they appreciate the pun. I think a Lutheran would too. But how do you with the word "Lutheran"???
I remember very vividly when a Lutheran pastor took umbrage at a Reformed theologian who mocked Luther by a play on his name. "Luder" has several unsavory meanings in both German and Danish. The question isn't whether one Orthodox Christian found it amusing. What's at stake is respect for other Christian communities, and how Lutherans would react to such a thing.
