So here in the Seminary we have morning and evening prayer at the same time every day. In the same place, the oratory (chapel). This hasn’t changed in like 1,500 years. It’s the same temperature year round in the oratory. One temperature- Hot. Maybe if your lucky its a little warm, but that’s on a good day.
So riddle me this: Why do you wear a sweater or other form of heat producing vestment in there?!? Then proceed to use a book as a fan. It’s not like your walking in there thinking “oh it’ll be cooler today.” NO! It won’t. It was hot yesterday, it’s going to be hot today, and I’ll go out on a limb and probably guess that it’ll be hot tomorrow.
It’s not like we don’t have hooks outside the door in the hallway to hang things. I’m pretty sure Ke$ha sang song about this: TAKE IT OFF. Simple, easy, and straight forward. You are a philosophy major for goodness sake, this is easier than Socrates.
But no, I will continue to witness you waving your hand wildly while we are praying because you are hot. Which is very distracting I might add. Anyway, with that said I hope you all enjoy your Friday.
