Ringing In The New…Roof?

Category : Divorce Ritual, Wedding Rings

I heard a story recently about a priest who found a engagement ring (not cubic zirconia) that was left by someone in the collection plate. The priest had no idea who it was from. He asked at various services if anyone wanted to claim it. Nobody stepped up. He didn’t know what to do. So finally he sold it and put a new roof on the church. Makes sense I guess, right?

Maybe the divorcee got married in that church and wanted to return it to where it all began? Or, maybe it slipped off of her finger when she was putting in a dollar? (Probably not.)

What do you think? Is this a good way to get rid of your ring and move on after a divorce?

This is wonderful!

I’d want the tax write-off. Other than that – great!

I believe it is important to rid oneself of objects that are constant reminders of pain and negativity. Good for her!

And, some believe giving a gift anonymously is the ultimate in generosity. I’ll bet she felt GREAT!

Every true genius is bound to be naive.
