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.

Enjoy—

  • 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.
