Rev. DeLuxe ritually blesses The Church's Sacrificial Pumpkin
The Church of Tina Chopp celebrated the Ritual of Pumpkin Sacrifice for the
third time in seven years on Sunday, 15 October, 2000 (era vulgaris, sorry) at St. Fred's house. Having gotten quite a bit of feedback from last year's Ritual concerning the lack of railings on the Change Creek bridge, combined with a rather negative reception from the innocent bystanders, we decided to try having the Public Ritual in a somewhat less public spot. The public was still invited, but only that public which felt comfortable contacting The Church or who knew St. Fred personally were actually in attendence. The back deck of St. Fred's house provided a very interesting, although, compared to the Change Creek bridge, somewhat anti-climactic venue for The Church's most sacred, and most public Ritual.
