What is a gralefrit?

RobinEllis

Gralefrit is (another) blog of theological musings and sermons and other juicy tit-bits from a follower of Jesus Christ, hoping to be joined by others along the Way. Gralefrit is a made-up word in honour of the undercover policeman (played by Robin Ellis) in an episode of Fawlty Towers (A Touch of Class) who, when ordering breakfast from the maid Polly, assumed the persona of an ignorant illiterate, and ordered his grapefruit by stumbling through the menu and asked for a “gralefrit’. Classic!!

The link with this web site should be obvious: I am a God-lover, Jesus follower, UK Baptist church minister, aspiring theologian, husband, father, grandfather, wannabe chef, but feel that any attempts to explain the divine grapefruit of God’s Word only end up as a stuttering and incoherent stumble towards something that stretches and leans towards the real thing.

If I can tempt you with my gralefrits, then maybe you can be encouraged to actually taste the real thing.
