ABOUT THIS EPISODE:
Many of you attended parties recently, to ring in a false year endorsed by no Story but by the liar we call “Calendar.” Do not congregate, least of all for the ringing of a false bell. For, by attending any gathering the Story does not endorse, you fall prey to every rude temptation! Illicit wares, rowdy conversation, and sounds you cannot unhear. Stay home, warm yourself with but the Story, and abandon any friend the Story does not already claim.
Psalm: “A Thing Going ‘Round”
Liturgical Reading: “Overheard at the Party”
This Story had to be told, and next week another will beg for similar justice. Ohhh, we cannot deny you.
