Yesterday we pointed out that Lutherans are cool–at least in Cool, California! Today we received evidence from our Orange County correspondent that Presbyterians are hungry–at least in North Carolina.
What’s the phrase under the Reverend’s name?
‘Ceud mìle fàilte’ is a common Scots Gaelic greeting, literally meaning ‘a hundred thousand welcomes’.
I’m more put off by the “revrend’s” name than the funny church name.
One hundred thousand welcomes
I snapped this gem. Apparently, this particular area of North Carolina had a large Scottish immigrant population and as evidenced by the sign this church goes back to the 1700’s. I also happened on “The Talking Church” in Pinehurst, NC. which broadcasts sermons on a local radio frequency. Interesting, though, was the fact that to get good reception you had to be parked right in front of the church door that you could access from a circular driveway. I guess that’s one way to get people “to” the door.
And…..you have to wonder if Adam’s rib has been a subject of any sermon. I know you were thinking that…
Well, North Carolina does have the world’s best BBQ. The Presbyterians, on the other hand, leave much to be desired.
Hopefully, “Sandy” is short for Alexander . . .
“Sandy” probably has/had reddish hair, not unknown among the Scots and the Irish.
