The Healing of the Nations

I'm absolutely livid. This was all Morgoth's fault at that stupid Courtyard Service.

Inspired by the Revelation text that "the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations", he encouraged everybody to take a leaf with them to meditate on the healing that the nations need.

My favourite dwarf magnolia stripped bare. Not a leaf left. I can see whose room is going to receive the Beaker Tarantula tonight.

  1. You should see the branches of the olive trees in the Garden of Gethsemane.

  2. A tarantula? Surely that's taking spiritual direction (SpiDir) a step too far!

  3. Perhaps Morgoth's fantasy is a Hairy Spider - he has '#Goth' in his name after all.

    He knowingly did the dirty deed, knowing full well that he would receive the notorious Beaker Tarantula.

    1. Another Morgoth certainly got on well with a large spider (name of Ungoliant).

  4. Umm - you did realize that some trees (and bushes and largish plants) have poisonous leaves? Sometimes so poisonous that if anyone kissed them (or, heaven forbid, ate them during the meditation) the number of your flock could decrease quite suddenly? I think you should consider yourself lucky that they picked the dwarf magnolia leaves.

    1. Yes, the Yew would have been a very bad idea.
