Harold’s team of dedicated theology students leapt in to action at the weekend on hearing that the Holy Ghost had been seen in the mud of the River Hamble.
Unfortunately, they were disappointed to discover nothing more than the wreck of an ancient war ship, rather than the third member of the Godhead.
“We were over the moon at the thought of seeing God’s power in action” said team leader Bob Esther, “I’d got my camera charged, Tim’s mum packed sandwiches for us and we even had PC Flegg’s permission to use the van and blue-light it here. And for what? Some bits of muddy wood?”
“It really was upsetting” confirmed Tim Thomason, stroking his crucifix. “It’s made me question a lot of things. I wanted to see God send out his spirit by projecting his energy, but there was just a funny man with a beard talking about ‘Agincourt’ and ‘Harfleur’.”
“What kind of weirdo is turned on by ancient relics? It’s not right.”
The group hope to raise funds by selling a thigh bone from John the Baptist, to buy signs to warn people not to bother visiting the site.
