Lutherans are like bay leaves

They're essential to most great soups, but eaten alone or direct are difficult to swallow and frankly unpalatable. They're easy to forget, not that attractive on the surface, but just taste soups without them and you'll never forget the bay leaf again.

    Now this is the craziest thing I have ever heard. Salt and leaven, but bay leaves?

  2. I think this analogy is a bit stretched. Besides, I like Lutherans in groups (not to eat, though).

  3. We had a preacher at the gathering last week who talked about Christian gumbo. This was my humorous additional riff on the theme. Apparently I wasn't clear enough in being tongue-in-cheek.
