Jesus Multiplying 5 Loaves and 2 Fish

After a Joyland lesson on Jesus feeding the 5,000, Father B asks his child if he learned about Jesus multiplying 5 loaves and 2 fish.  The child says, "No, dad, you're wrong."  And he takes this out.

Gracepoint Rutgers Joyland Lesson

NOTE: There is nothing theologically significant about the number in this case, so perhaps this Joyland teacher wanted to make that point.  But I doubt that that's what happened.

Disgracepoint from East Coast: Floor Lambs

Another post from the East Coast...

Sister B's email:
Please pack those floor lambs by disassembling them and putting them in boxes.  4 of my floor lambs broke, because I moved them.  You need floor lambs here, as the homes here don't have light fixtures.  So most of them need floor lambs to plug in for lights.

A comment: It's pretty amazing that how many times sister B uses the word.  I think she really wanted to make it abundantly clear what she was talking about.

Confusing Label

I have no idea how to make sense of this label.  This container contained soy sauce, but that seems to be beside the point.  What could possibly be inside the container which would make sense of this label?
