Some Light Relief Amid The Gloom...

His Hermeneuticalness put up a post about the Beaker Folk of Husborne Crawley. Unfortunately, "Beaker Folk" just makes me think of the Muppets, but this blog is really screamingly funny. I particularly enjoyed reading some of their liturgies.

Sadly, I suspect that some of the "trendies" in the Church have read the same liturgical notes, and tried to incorporate them into the Mass, in the name of ecumenism...

For anyone who remembers Beaker from the Muppets, here he is with Dr. Bunsen.

Presumably, the video is intended to show how the Beaker Folk came about.

Matthaeus -

Not true, although it's a nice thought.... The Beaker Folk, as the "Post-Christendom Paradigm" makes clear, came about from disillusionment with "Celtic" Christianity.
This may well be an Anglican/Episcopalian phenomenon, but I suspect that the elevation of experience over tradition and Scripture can occur within other traditions. If you're not careful.
