In what has become a Clergy Confidential tradition (ie. I did it last year/we've always done it that way) it's time for this year's round-up of Bad Pentecost Clipart.
This began innocently enough as I was scouring the internet for a Pentecost icon for our parish newsletter. But then I discovered that this feast day offers the mother lode of horrendous images. Forget the 'eye of the beholder' -- there's some ugly stuff out there. When you combine tongues of fire, wind, a variety of languages, and a dove, I guess this isn't altogether surprising. But yowza!
In any case, my Pentecost gift (May 24th this year) to you includes a few of my "favorites" from the online horror I encountered. "Enjoy."
|The Holy Spirit and how it would look if it descended upon Mr. Bill.
|The "Power of Pentecost" trapped in a flaming snow globe?
|Either the disciples need to turn that frown upside down or the fu manchu had really caught on.
|The perfect Pentecost meal: dove flambé.
|"Oil Refineries for Jesus."
|Can you say "Ad for Lasix surgery?"
|"Again?" What, does Pentecost bore you? And why is that flaming bird twerking?
|Jerry Garcia meets liturgical dance.
|Pentecost is so amazing that the guy on the right did a face palm.
|Who doesn't enjoy some grilled pigeon as a special coffee hour treat?
|May Day! May Day! We're being dive bombed by a flaming bird!
|If this scarecrow looking thing only had a brain.
