RE: The reinterment of King Richard III
Dear Dean Monteith, I just now read an article on Yahoo News, written by Megan Gannon, in which the following appears: “The Cathedral of Leicester recently unveiled its $1.5 million (£1 million) plan to rebury the monarch in a new raised tomb inside the church, with a week of celebrations leading up to the reinterment.” Please understand that this money would be ill spent. The dead king, or whoever that 600-year-old cadaver might be, would better be interred with honor in some already existing tomb, perhaps alongside Henry VIII or George III, someone with whom he would feel right at home; and the money instead should be used to help the most needy, or in some function of which Jesus Christ might approve. I suggest you consult Christ in this matter, before going forward in such folly as reveals that your priorities are remarkably out of order.
James 1:27 Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
