I've  merged the two threads about this topic into one.

Could it be that we are simply unwilling to change?
Change?...We're Orthodox!  What does "change" mean? Cheesy

I think we should have had a few councils about having a council to discuss changing the color settings.

How many Calvinists does it take to change a lightbulb?
None. God has predestined when the lights will be on.

How many Evangelicals does it take to change a lightbulb?
Evangelicals don't change lightbulbs ... they read the instructions and hope the lightbulbs will change themselves.

How many Agnostics does it take to change a lightbulb?
10, as they need to debate whether or not the lightbulb exists. Even if they can agree upon the existence of the lightbulb they may not go ahead and change it for fear of alienating those who use
fluorescent tubes.

How many Conservative Anglicans does it take to change a lightbulb?
Three. One to change it and two to storm out in protest that the person changing it is a woman.

How many Unitarians does it take to change a lightbulb?
We choose not to make a statement either in favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, that is fine. You are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your personal relationship with your light bulb, and present it next month at our annual light bulb Sunday service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions including incandescent, fluorescent, three-way, long-life and tinted, all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence.

How many Baptists does it take to change a lightbulb?
At least 15. One to change the light bulb, and three committees to approve the change and decide who brings the potato salad.

How many Methodists does it take to change a lightbulb?
Undetermined. Whether your light is bright, dull, or completely out, you are loved-- you can be a light bulb, turnip bulb, or tulip bulb. Churchwide lighting service is planned for Sunday, August 18. Bring bulb of your choice and a covered dish.

How many Hare Krishnas does it take to change a lightbulb?
10, one to change the lightbulb and 9 to dance, sing and play the tambourine while it is being changed

How many Quakers does it take to change a lightbulb?
Ten to sit around in a circle and wait for the inner light

How many Amish does it take to change a lightbulb?
What's a light bulb?

How many Jehovah's Witnesses does it take to change a lightbulb?
None. The lights are on but no one's home.

How many Mormons does it take to change a lightbulb?
Five. One man to change the bulb, and four wives to tell him how to do it.

How many Orthodox does it take to change a lightbulb?
Change?

How many Episcopalians does it take to change a light bulb?
Two- one to mix a pitcher of martinis and one to ring for the maid.

How many people does it take to change a light bulb on St. Patrick's Day?
Two- one to hold it up to the socket and one to drink until the room starts spinning.

How many politicians does it take to change a light bulb?
Who knows, they all promise change but never seem to deliver.

How many Jews does it take to change a light bulb?
One, so long as it's before sunset on Friday.

I think that should be, "Change?  IS OUTRAGE!"

Are you seriously comparing the two?  I fail to see how eyestrain compares to the Crucifixion, or is even relevant.

1.  There is no comparison between the Crucifixion and/or Christ's 40 Days of Temptation where the latter forms the basis for Orthodox Great Lent.

2.  Cleopas does not understand the 40 Days of Lent.  He complains about the Purple text and receives an Orthodox Christian explanation like the one I had provided in a prior post on this thread.  Because this is the Technical Forum, I did not explain further.   Smiley

I've  merged the two threads about this topic into one.

There were two threads about this topic. One was called "Forum Skin" and the other was called "Shades f Mauve". I merged them into one, and kept the one title "Forum Skin".

The lenten colour scheme takes me back to my youth when my mother always wore these shades of mauve to the races.   The colours remind me of pretty women, the Queen Mother, and fine race horses.

That one caused a bug in the Safari browser and is not supported in future upgrades, so we may have to go without it. Sad
