"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Fall Family Festival at St. Vincent's

Saturday was our Fall Festival at St. Vincent's. The Chili Cook-off was a smashing success (I was a bean judge!). A good time was had by all.

Bean judge??? I recall you telling me that chili with beans was an abomination before God and man! Have the organizers considered the offense to consciences such as yours? Have they forgotten the words (I paraphrase) of St. Paul? "Therefore, if food makes my brother stumble, I will never force him to judge beans, lest I make my brother stumble."

No, sir, these were simply BEANS, not chili at all. There were six other judges for the chili competition. I and three others judged the beans at a separate table. I wouldn't dream of judging chili with BEANS in it, sir! Oh, the horror!
