Now wash your hands please

by Richard on June 25, 2008

Some of you know that there was a time when I worked in a rather splendid wholefood co-op. It was a good while ago, but I learned alot about the food trade in a short space of time and could get quite animated on the subject of wholefoods, given the opportunity.

I remember once someone had an idea for promoting the sale of prunes, and put up a large notice next to the proper shelf, where it said simply

Start a new movement.

Eat Prunes

The sign didn’t last long — not all of our customers were endowed with a sense of humour — but the phrase has stuck in my mind for some reason.

So I smiled when I read on The Church Times Blog (and PamBG’s, to be fair) that the GAFCON conference is being proclaimed as “the beginning of a movement”.

Quite.

Richard - I knew, when I wrote that headline, that someone somewhere out there on the big wide internet would find humour in it. I just had no idea who it would be. :)
