Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Just for Laughs

A Nutty Story
A pastor was visiting an elderly woman living in a senior home. She was confined to bed, so he sat next to her to listen and offer company. As he sat and listened to her litany of aches, pains and family disappointments, he noticed a bowl of peanuts on her bedside table. He began to help himself to a few as she talked on and on. Before he realized it, he had eaten the entire stash of peanuts. Embarrassed, he said, "I am so sorry, but I ate all of your peanuts. When I come back to visit next time, I'll bring you some more."

She answered, "That's OK. I don't like them peanuts anyway. I just suck the chocolate off of them."

Finally, in the funny-but-true file is this article from The New York Times In a Land of Homemade Names, Tiffany Doesn’t Cut It which tells of a trend toward baby names that border on child abuse including the newspaper editor named Hatred Zenenga. The article says, "Have-a-Look Dube is a well-known Zimbabwean soccer player. There are Zimbabwean children named Wedding, Funeral, Everloving, Passion and Anywhere, among others."
