The mystery of the hurricane pumpkins

The mystery of the hurricane pumpkins

After Hurricane Nate came through, among the debris were hundreds of pumpkins, deposited neatly on the beach. The photo op was so perfect that many people called it a hoax. However, it’s true. The pumpkins were pulled from the garden at Trinity Church, Pass Christian, MS. The church holds an annual fundraiser by selling the pumpkins, but those stolen by the hurricane are too battered for carving. They are nonetheless free for the taking for animal fodder, according to Fred Tagge of Trinity Church. The church will be receiving a truckload of replacement pumpkins, so that the fundraiser can go forward. And thus, the mystery of Hurricane Nate’s pumpkins was resolved.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
