Pray Pal

From High Five To Hive Five

A religious beekeeper in Serbia has started making beehives shaped like tiny monasteries and churches "because bees have a soul too". Slobodan Jeftic said: "By doing this, I am bringing together the two great loves of my life, beekeeping and my religion. I am also taking care of their souls." He has built all his hives in the shape of Orthodox churches and monasteries in Serbia.

I think this is a honey of an idea. Perhaps just one, of swarms of ideas this fellow has...I bet he's abuzz with them day and night...:)

I'm guessing they tithe 10% of their honey every Sunday...

I think this is great!
Goldfish get their own little castles so why can't bees get some buildings too?

Just tell me which tower has the honey in it.

I'm not sure I can find fault with his thinking. I am put in mind of the sacred cows of India...food for thought...

Oh, this is just too sweet! It gives a glimpse inside of a gentle soul. I'm not sure if the bees are aware of their hallowed surroundings, but I'm certain they are probably some of the best cared for creatures around.

With the recent rash of honey bee deaths this might just be a great idea!

The Bible says that bees in pagan hives are going to hell.
Thank God for this man who is bringing redemption to those wayward bees.
Bless their little buzzing souls.
