Blowing Up a Church August 12, 2008

Blowing Up a Church

I’ve been to many churches in my day…

But never an inflatable one:


The 30-metre (98 ft) long blow-up church — staffed by priests ready to take confession — will debut on Saturday on the Adriatic coast in the Molise region, an organiser said.

“There will be four or five people singing, with music about God,” said Chiara Facci with Catholic group Sentinelli del Mattino. Night time activities, which will not include Mass, will run from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.

The first attempt to inaugurate the inflatable church last month on the holiday island of Sardinia failed after strong winds forced organisers to relocate, she said.

Huh. Who knew Church was full of hot air!?

    I saw a magazine article in Discover Magazine about an inflatable church. This was several years ago. The church was used in rural Britain, if I remember it correctly.

  • How quickly before kids starting jumping around inside of it?

    The new blog look is nice, by the way!

    An ‘Act of God’ perhaps?

    I see a picket fence by the inflatable church. Does the church come with an inflatable cemetery next to it?

    Why include priests on staff when they could attach an inflatable priest inside like Otto the inflatable pilot from the movie “Airplane?”

    Does it come with a blow up “wife”?

  • Hehe, awful puns FTW. 😉

    And, in the spirit of sharing something I recently discovered, what’s commonly known as a ‘rimshot’ is apparently called a ‘sting‘ by those in the drumming business.

    Live and learn and all that.

  • Wow … and this very day we find this.

    Co-incidence? Or a message from Dog?
