Sabbath


If thou wilt do good, yea, and hold out faithful to the end, thou shalt be saved in the Kingdom of God, which is the greatest of all the gifts of God ~ D&C 6:13

Hi Bobbie,
did you know that the passionfruit was named after the passion of Christ? to quote wikipedia:

"The Passion Fruit has a religious connection, as the name 'Passion' was given by Catholic missionaries who thought that certain parts of the fruit bore some religious connections. These missionaries (who were joined by the Spanish Conquistadors in South America), saw a way of illustrating the Crucifixion: The three stigmas were to reflect the three nails in Jesus's hands and feet. The threads of the passion flower were believed to be a symbol of the crown of thorns. The vines tendrils were likened to the whips. The five anthers represented the five wounds. The 10 petals and sepals regarded to resemble the apostles (excluding Judas and Peter)"

hmm, what do you think? a bit of a reach? there are object lessons all around us if you look hard enough!
