I think this is the first time I've seen an explicit dress code, describing proper and improper attire in detail, for any event or venue on Lamma.
A sign of things to come, after spotting more suits on the ferries?

God has very firm views on how we should dress, and he is easily offended.

His ideas do seem to differ from country to country though, and from time to time. I seem to recall that women had to wear hats in church, but maybe he doesn't mind any more as long as most other bits are covered up.

Not just proper dress BUT ALSO VEIL.. LOOK AT MOTHER MARY.....

See below the bible verse......

Corinthians 11:6

For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off; but if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head.

To sum up the discussion, there seems to be market demand for topless church services.

Well that certainly informs the women of their rightful place in a patriachal desert society.

Looking at the small print in that poster I see a reference to Chris, a deity new to me. What role in the pantheon does he play? God the grandson, perhaps?

This evening I was coming back to Tai Peng past the fire station and saw one of the nuns from the chapel running along the path, wearing the full length brown habit and head scarf. I thought she was just late for something, but a few minutes later she was running back the other way. Then again. I saw her stop at Tai Peng for a minute then turn back. So it looks like proper attire for nuns applies even when they're jogging in 28 degree heat.

Photos!!!

This must be one of the new, younger nuns and it's great to see these cheerful members of our community keeping fit! But heat stroke is a real danger she's facing and there might be some regulations that might allow less formal dress for strenuous activities? Maybe not...

Some more feedback from a church member commenting on this "proper attire" poster:

"It's about dressing up appropriately, we are attending a banquet with our King and the heavenly beings. It's just right that we dress up properly for the occasion."

They dress to suit the supposed preferences of imaginary beings.

It's a funny old world.

You say they are imaginary because they can't be proved.

But can you prove they are imaginary?

Anyway, it is called 'Faith' because it doesn't need to be proven.

(proved or proven, I don't know which is correct)

Another event from the very active LAMMA CATHOLIC COMMUNITY
As always, all faiths and beliefs are welcome to submit their public events to this website and I'll be happy to post them all.

Yes, even the sentient cockroaches projecting a hologram of a human being mentioned in the last post above would be welcome in this forum. I suspect we might have a few of them hiding on Lamma.... :radiant:
