Ready to ramble

Ashley and I went to the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts at City Park today. The school art exhibit was up, with drawings and photos and sculptures from students in elementary school through high school all over the county. Some of it impressed me.  A few girls from Boonsboro High are eerily talented; they might have futures as great artists or airbrushers of motorcycles.
 
They were also pushing this event called the Museum Ramble, described as a “self-guided tour” through the various museums and historic points of interest in the county. One of the ladies at the fine arts museum gave Ashley a pamphlet which lists the participating sites. Some are legitimate museums and historic sites, and others on the list sound like places no one in their right mind would ever step foot in. Number three on the list is the Christian Heritage Museum.
 
The blurb for the Christian Heritage Museum, which is twice as long as the one for Fort Frederick, the oldest state park in Maryland, reads:
 
A privately owned collection of historic Bibles, books, manuscripts, sermon notes, and documents of Christian history, gathered for the past 25 years in order to preserve, protect, educate, motivate, and inspire others to live for Christ.
 
As Ashley said, “Do the math – come see Bibles from 1982!” Rather than rambling over there, we moseyed around the Fine Arts museum looking at doodles by elementary school kids. I’m prepared to live with that.

Wow Steve! Is this the same Anonymous that gave you so much grief when you tried to argue that you have to pay taxes? If so, you really smoothed things over with him.

It actually is a pretty good event. See: http://www.marylandmemories.org/ramble/ (Maybe the web site is still up for an event that happened last weekend). The Christian Heritage Museum made a lot of news last year, locally and regionally - for a collection that includes things from more than 1,000 years ago. AP and USAToday did articles about it. See: http://www.christianheritagemuseum.com/ and for the articles see: http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2006/aug/12/bible_collector_displays_rarities/?living and also: http://www.timesanddemocrat.com/articles/2006/08/10/features/doc44dbcf35b95e9477328115.txt. I'm no Bible-thumper - but it's pretty cool that a rare collection is here in our little town.

It is pretty cool, and I don't mean to disparage the Ramble, which I agree is a good event. I wish the museums and historical sites around here got more attention, especially from the folks who live around here and take it for granted. But any chance I see to make fun of Christians I'm going to jump on. I know it's like shooting fish in a barrel, but have you ever actually shot fish in a barrel? That is a good time.
