You might remember the stack of religious flyers we found at a restaurant in Canada a few days ago (See Penteix Bakery), but it seems free pamphlets and Bibles are becoming the norm at restaurants across the U.S. And Canada.
While waiting on my order of biscuits & gravy at a Krystal (the southern version of Whitecastle) near Colonial Heights TN, I noticed the sign, “Free Bibles.”
Looking closer, I saw what appeared to be a framed certificate next to the Bibles. Sure enough, it was an ordination certificate.
It seems mail order ordination is passé. On UM’s website (Universal Ministries website), I learned ordination is only a mouse click away.
