Gentlemen, what's your favourite colour of socks? firstname.lastname@example.org
We try to keep a variety of colours of Holy Socks. While most men seem to prefer black or navy, as one woman visiting the our stand once said "some men wear brightly coloured socks." For those who do, red is often the bright colour of preference.
So here's a pair of our current red socks - a lovely rich red for the Holy Socks which illustrate the Parable of the Talents from Matthew 25, 14-30. Tucked away in this story is the well know saying - not just used by Christians - "Well done, good and faithful servant" and this is the verse which we have used for the front of the leaflet.
This is a major "not a pair of Holy Socks" with a pile of coins on each side of each sock, one each of five, ten, two and four. What did we do with the coin the worthless servant hid? On the size 4-7, it's hidden under the turn-over top and on the size 6-11, the single coin is on the sole of one of the socks. A definite "not a pair of socks."
Back in February this year, the R. Earsman Ltd/Rallying with Holy Socks crew of Jock Armstrong and Paula Swinscoe gave this design it's debut on the A.R.R. Craib, MSA Scottish Rally Championship. The Arnold Clark, Thistle Hotels Snowman Rally is the first round and wearing the Talents, the pair proved they had enough talent to win the event, which is staged round the forests of Inverness.
We'll be taking a look at some of our other brightly coloured Holy Socks later in the week. Meantime let us know which colour you prefer.
