Dancing on the Head of a Pin

There is a legend of St Thomas Aquinas asking "How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?" At this blog we ask all questions dealing with our faith and spirituality. Some are down to earth, rubber meets the road questions, while others are more lofty...like, how many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

Wing and a Prayer

The above title is a suggestion for the name of a new books and gifts store St Michael's will soon be opening. In 1993, St Michael's purchased the home adjacent to the church with the vision that an ecumenical center for ministry might call the house "home." 13 years later, Wimberly House Ministries, Inc. has many programs including a counseling center, an after-school program, and a senior's day out, but there is so much more than can be done. In hopes to raise money for the center and to raise awareness of the ministry, we will be opening a Christian books and gifts store in the front parlor. We will offer quality books on theology, Church history, devotionals, etc., as well as gifts such as sterling silver jewelry, crosses, icons, and the like. This will be a ministry of St Michael's for the ministry of Wimberly House. Hopefully we'll be able to share our Anglican way in the process.

The thing is, we're struggling for a name. I don't like cheesy religious names for stores and we don't want it to be too "Anglican" because we want Baptists, Presbyterians, and everyone to come to the store.

The best we have is the boring: Wimberly House Books and Gifts or the Wimberly Store. I invite your suggestions!
