Church Of England Goes Into Partnership With Estate Agents To Offer Blessing Services To People Moving Home.

Recommended Posts

Thought the telegraph editorial on this strange alliance was quite amusing

Blessed alliance

At first sight, the partnership being proposed between Church of England priests and estate agents seems a very odd one. If the priest is seen as God's representative in the parish, the estate agent is often seen (though not always fairly) as the devil's.

But the match makes sense from both sides' point of view. By teaming up with estate agents to advertise services to bless new homes, the Church has found a way of making immediate contact with newcomers to the parish.

At the same time, it is appealing to the spiritual side of people who might otherwise turn to such faddish mumbo-jumbo as feng shui. As for estate agents, by co-operating in God's work, they might find that even they have a chance of eternal salvation.

They will be praying for them when the bubble bursts

What will the church come up with next? A blessing ceremony before women go for breast enlargement surgery?

Anyone buying now will need all the help they can get!

As for estate agents I don't think they will ever find salvation after the bubble bursts.

Probably a blessing ceremony for the sites of pagan rituals.

Or perhaps a recruitment drive amongst Diabolists?

"We feel, basically, that, errr... in a very real sense, that the Devil's just had a very bad press. And after working with Estate Agents we feel that this is the logical next step".
