Anybody like doing pub quizes? Well here’s a piece of pub trivia for you. The posh name for bit of the church you are sitting in is “the nave” - and that means the “ship”. Why on earth does anybody call the bit of the church you are sitting in “the ship”? It doesn’t look like a ship does it? There’s no rigging. There’s no sails. There’s no oars. So why call it a “nave” a “ship”? It’s because the early Christians experienced God rescuing them from the storms of life - so they nicknamed the bit “The Ship” to celebrate how God had helped them like a lifeboat rescuing drowning people from the water.
