I knew preaching was over-rated!!!


“The medieval country priest rarely, if ever, preached a sermon. He might never even have read the Bible, let alone studied it in sufficient depth to expound its meaning. Instead, his congregation relied for their religious knowledge on the brightly-coloured pictures which covered the walls of the church, illustrating the main Bible stories and the lives of the saints.”

Pg 56-57 In The country Church by Robert Van De Weyer
