A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous...Likewise must the deacons be grave, not double-tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre; holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.

There is such a thing as being so broad you are flat.richard weaver
My master is of churlish disposition And little recks to find the way to heaven By doing deeds of hospitality.william shakespeare
