From Unthinking Anglicans

As a visual aid, there's nothing more effective than a fire-eating Vicar. Father Edward Martin is a real fire and brimstone preacher, giving demonstrations of fire-eating to his newly-enlightened congregations. Concerned churchgoers need look no further than the New Testament, which proclaims "One who is more powerful than I will baptise with the Holy Ghost and fire." Fr Martin's fire-eating act is reserved for baptisms at his church. Rev. Colin Davis (right) also terrifies his congregation by giving them a foretaste of what is to come. The threat of Hell has always been a sure fire way of forcing people to behave. More Anglican clergy should start eating fire during their sermons.

Is the rector of St Aug's getting into practice in case the boilers aren't ready for the weekend services? A wee fire might be just the thing to warm the place up :-)
