Grant rest to your servant, O Lord.
1. Who will pay the cost of all that worcestershire sauce?
2. Where will you dump it afterwards?
3. Advise the dunkee to wash his eyes and body afterwards. That stuff must smart.

2. We give it to restaurants in California as a blessing.
3. It does sting, but the more it stings, the more effective it feels to the heart. It is traditional for the new believer not to bathe, but to marinate in the glory of repentance for three days.
Does the Chinese branch use soy sauce? Is sodium reduced acceptable?
I don't know, but the Indonesian branch gives you a choice: satay sauce, or, for the true ascetics, sambal oelek.
Everything tastes better with sambal oelek. Paella, chicken sandwich, anything is improved by sambal. I couldn't live without it.
With his gentle smile and soft Alabama drawl, [Fr. Gordon] Walker -- who died on July 23 -- was a key figure in an unusual American story. The former Southern Baptist pastor and Campus Crusade evangelist was part of a circle of evangelical leaders that spent a decade reading church history before starting an Orthodox church for American converts. Then in 1987, the late Metropolitan Philip Saliba accepted more than 2,000 pastors and members of their Evangelical Orthodox Church into the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America.
