Which Corgi Sticker

There has been much talk ever since my first day in theological college over what brand of Christian I am. I had no idea there were so many different types until I arrived at this infamous seat of learning. Surely the question is not what type of follower I am but whether I am one at all. Some are following on rollerskates, some in a car, some walking, some sitting down having a breather and some are simply taking their first steps. Does it really matter if I am not that keen on rollerskating? This issue is more complex than our individual responses. It is now clear to me that the modes of travel have various groupings with banners over them, many give themselves names, have 'Visions', host conferences and some are so bold and confident as to say theirs is the only way to travel. How do they know that? I have not infrequently been asked to join one or more of these travelling clubs and have been on more than one of their holidays. To date, I have resisted the urge to join up. With particular reference to one such travelling club closely associated with vintners, my friend Tim commented "just because you have a Corgi sticker on your van it doesn't mean you are a registered plumber". For the time being my focus I think should be on becoming a good and competent plumber and perhaps we should all be a little wary of stickers, whatever they say.

Cookie,

You kind of sound like the godless Episcopal Church in this post. "It's not the content that matters. It just matters that we're here, moving together on this nebulous tram of indifferent significance."
