Sublime Moments in Inter-Religious Encounters
It's not all misunderstanding and hostility, conflict and violence.
Yet sometimes it very much is.
Ecumenical Curry. Interfaith Football. Sexism.
Check out this wonderful clip from Rev., a British sitcom (2010-2014).
Rev. is a vintage British creation: classically clever, disarmingly thoughtful, with all the requisite self-loathing.
Above: Adam Smallbone, an Anglican priest and the vicar of St. Saviour of the Marshes in East London, has organized a simple, recreational, interfaith football game.
Is that too much to ask of a Christian minister? Apparently so.
- The vicar's usually loyal parishioner, Colin, has temporarily defected to Buddhism, which causes Colin a slight bit of spiritual agitation and yields a philosophical exchange to die for.
- Interfaith sensitivity (hyper-sensitivity?) on the part of the vicar has him uttering this dietary gem: "It's all kosher and halal and wheat-free."
- And most every husband has walked in the vicar's shoes: that moment when the desire to win causes one to open mouth and insert foot.
