We're planning a BBQ for lunch after church this Sunday, Jan 6. Is this appropriate?

Sure.

Too many Protestants churches see the liturgical calendar as a "Catholic" thang so too many Protestants don't understand it. It's nice to hear you guys are doing an Epiphany feast. Maybe you can twist the Pastors arm in to doing a service on Ash Wednesday too. Maundy Thursday might be asking too much though.

I thought this was a tobacco review when I read the title.

The Orthodox make a big deal out of celebrating Epiphany -- as big as Christmas. The mystery of the Incarnation is revealed to the world!

A parish party/barbecue is a great idea.

My parish is having a special celebration -- Fr. Z is blogging about it HERE.

The Epiphany Liturgy includes special blessings and EXORCISMS upon water and salt. Epiphany Water and Epiphany Salt are weaponized spiritual hand grenades for driving demons away.... or, at least, irritating them back to Hell.

So long as you do not use a vinegar based, AKA North Carolina, sauce.

I love it here but, these clowns really missed the BBQ bus.

That's EASTERN North Carolina. We do it right up here.

That's irrelevant. Anyway, this here is the theology forum, not the bbq-sauce-made-out-of-mustard-and-vinegar-and-served-with-something-called-"hash" forum.

Easter and Christmas are holidays that begin weeks of feasting and celebration. It’s perfectly acceptable to host an Epiphany party as part of your Christmas celebration, and if barbecue gets you in the celebratory spirit, then go on with your bad self.

And don’t forget to chalk your door when you return home. :wink:

You mean read the play? Or watch a movie. Either way the wassailing sounds good.
Anyway, plans have slightly changed now. I'll be returning from a south Texas quail hunt this weekend so bbq for me will be dinner. I may pick up some goat ribs or shoulder, some Bohunk sausage, and bring home some green mesquite for sweet smoke. Shiner Bock will go very well also. I'm beginning to really get into this Epiphany feast.

Back in high school I worked at a grocery store. One evening I kept seeing customers with smudges on their foreheads so, being the helpful lad that I was, I kept motioning to them them that they had something on their foreheads. They would just smile or give me a perplexed look. What would cause that many people to come to the store with dirt on their heads? :?:

Thanks. I've got a lot to learn. About T-N, and wassailing both. (Wassailing wasn't what I thought it was.)
