You Couldn’t Make this Up

August 13th, 2017

You couldn’t make this stuff up if you tried!  Here are two films that show extraordinary initiatives that challenge the status-quo. Just to be clear, this post is not endorsing pot smoking. The spokespeople in both films point to the need for new religious perspectives.

Curious as to the religious practices of the church in Colorado? Watch their ‘Minister of Love’ in action (NB a lot of hugging is involved. Skip to 4 minutes in for their fivefold declaration)

  1. Wow amazing films. Certainly show that many people are challenging long held conceptions of traditional religion. I understand how some people could feel anger against the nuns in the first clip, but their spokeswomen made it clear that the mean no disrespect & use their mode of dress to be recognised as a Sisterhood who believe in using natural plants in medicine.

  2. There’s nowt so queer as Christians. I want to like all this stuff but I’m bothered by the pointing up and telling the ceiling that I love it.

    • Yes it’s funny isn’t it – the influence of American Evangelism, Baptist preachers and so on is still there despite the heady atmosphere!:)
