Maybe some of our guys should try this!?

The Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, smiles after having his head shaved as part of his Sunday service at York Minster cathedral in York, northern England August 13, 2006. (Nigel Roddis/Reuters)

Wait… this is a Reuters photo. Do you think they photoshoped his head and pitched the tent in the background??

    Maybe they used the eraser tool on his head? Was the O.T. reading of Moses and the tent of meeting?

  2. surge says:

    Oh, yes. Dr Sentamu plans to camp in the minster for a whole week.

    I’m at University in York. I walk past the minister all the time
    and dream of the day it’s restored to us….

    The current building took more than 200 years to build. It was only completed in the 1470’s so Mass was said there for less than half the time it took to build it :-(

  4. Yes, it would be wonderful to have them all back, and then have them all used properly!

  5. Matt says:

    Yes,indeed! Although across the road from the Minster is a Catholic Church, St Wilfrid’s, and close by, down the ancient street of the Shambles is the shrine of the martyr St Margaret Clitherow who was slowly crushed to death for sheltering priests. The reformers may have taken our beautiful churches but they couldn’t get rid of us!

    St Margaret Clitherow and all English martyrs pray for us!

    It always floors me what some bishops come up with when they think,
    “Hey, I’ve got a good idea …”
    It must be photoshopped, see how the tent fabric color matches his cassock. LOL.

  7. Tim Ferguson says:

    of course it’s the same colour as his cassock – Anglicans may be heretics, but they do have good taste!
