I'm curious, what might such a sermon consist of? Or has nothing in that aspect been decided on?

We don't have to assume it is because they want to quash his faith.


Save for the fact that was amongst the reasons given for their denial of his request...



Aye, I did see that, and in a sane world, you might believe the reasons given had something to do with the truth. For better or worse, I deal with organisations all day, lots of them say no - at least for a while, you just gotta talk to the right level of idiot, and when you finally get through to someone who has the authority (or knowledge, or interest) to say Yes, you find out that all the reasons you were given for "No" up until that point were basically just made up.

Most dingbats you meet or deal with are about as interesting as NPCs in a computer game - they have two or three lines they can say, and they add flavour to the world, but if you want to advance the plot you have to find the right mook.

Until then, everyone is just telling you that you can't use their building because they took an arrow to the knee.

No problems here except the usual Monday morning ones. I'm sure you know how that goes. Currently I'm fighting a parrot infestation over on my journal board. Darned thing showed up this morning and started squawking like a wounded duck. Pretty soon it learned to say something coherent but all it could do was repeat what I said. I tried to shoo it away and for now its gone. If it comes back though I may have to put it down.

Another thread, another derailment. Is it Monday already?

What about public preaching? I see people do it all the time over in Loughborough. Set up a stand, and instead of shouting out stuff, wait for questions?

Take it as a lesson in public appeal - Violent parrots are far more interesting than sermons in dusty buildings.

Get a violent parrot out, people stop and listen!

Shake off the trappings of bygone eras (except for the pirate era, I guess) and make a faith than deals with today's problems!


TESTIFY!

To slightly derail this further with parrots and preaching...

Some mature language, viewer discretion is advised.
