A long time ago, when I had just learnt to drive, I ran out of petrol on a lonely country road. I gratefully accepted some fuel from a nearby farmer. What he didn't tell me was that it was a mixture designed not for a car, but for a lawn mower. I got back home all right, but the next day the car behaved like a sick animal, coughing and spluttering.
In our secular culture, we may be much more familiar with the season of time when Tim Horton’s offers the ‘Roll up the Rim’ campaign. I never seem to win – but that’s besides the point. ‘Role up the Rim’ often runs beside the season of Lent – depending on how the calendar falls each year. I think Tim Horton’s historically decided they didn’t want us to fast coffee!
