Subject: RE: Folklore: Glastonbury thorn destroyed
I'm all for trees, I think, although they do have a habit of killing stuff that tries to grow beneath them. Nature green in leaf and branch, so to speak?
Why people should choose to believe that:
1. Joseph of Arimathea came to Glastonbury
2. With a stick
3. Planted said stick
3. Stick grew into tree
4. Tree lasted 2000(?) years
Is a complete mystery to me. But, that's probably none of my business.
But, but, but I am tempted to suggest to those that have decided to believe that one JC died and rose (?) again that bits of this tree can easily be replanted, as they clearly have done off and on, and this might be a symbol of the said 'raising from the dead'of one JC.
