Gnats and camels

Thanks to Olaf for a very entertaining all-age talk on Sunday. He was speaking on the passage in Matthew's gospel (23:24) about straining gnats and swallowing camels (ie worrying about details of religious/moral issues without seeing the huge issues). He quoted a recipe for cooking a camel he had found somewhere

Plover eggs, carp, bustards and sheep required for the full-on treatment. In short, you need a lot of greedy people to eat a camel - and a large fire-pit.
