The Varieties of Religious Appearance

Pulpits and lecterns are “One size fits all!”
Visiting preachers will cover the wall.
A very short woman,
She carries her step in
I’m very tall, so I carry a hole…

NOTE: These photographs of Steve kneeling (l) and standing (r) were taken several years ago at the historic pulpit of Sheldon Jackson in Colorado.Sheldon_Jackson Sheldon was a smaller guy with a big heart. Steve’s has the same heart and is likely much more humorous than Sheldon, but who’s to say?

  1. Reminds me of one of the Penn Music Department faculty members — over 7 feet, I think. It always made me smile when he used the top of the card catalog to take notes. More detail 😊: Even after we went digital, there were many things not “back entered”, and in several cases there were items that could not be entered in the computer — detailed notes and “analytics” (uniform name and name/title entries for everything on the disc) too long for the computer to digest, and not consistent with “the rules”. Too much detail, too many entries. 😁😑 At least some of the professors appreciated the work.🙂
