Is Corned Beef the Proper Way to Honor Patrick?

Last week the church had their annual corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, carrots and soda bread dinner; it sold out! I reluctantly go, because I am the pastor. I love beef, carrots, potatoes, and cabbage but the combination of them in the manner that is served is another story. The dinner was Saturday night. So think about the smell of cooked cabbage percolating throughout our building. Then imagine a jolly pastor coming in Sunday morning at 8:00am with a cup of coffee and a piece of banana bread. Then imagine this pastor unlocking the door and being attacked by a massive wave of cooked cabbage odor - not a pleasant experience. Believe me Anglicans do not have a cabbage scented incense for their services, and there is a reason why.
