I just ran across a holy tradition of which I was previously unaware.
A few minutes ago I was listening to an Audible freebie entitled The Most Wonderful Tales of the Year: Holiday Memories Shared by Audible Narrators. In the chapter entitled “Holidays at the Secular Orphanage” by Halter Graham, the narrator speaks of how his father was raised by a Presbyterian minister who believed in “Fire, brimstone, and Sunday enemas before church to be clean for God.”
The sacred tradition of the pre-church enema is a new one to me. Has anyone ever heard of this before?
