Memphis Service Ministries

If you’ve read my personal blog (Minister Is A Verb), you may have noticed the page called Sources of Inspiration. One such source is Discordianism. As this is not widely-known nor well-understood, mentions of Discordianism often leads to the question, “What the heck is that?!?”

Discordia or Eris was the Greco-.  Roman goddess of chaos. She figures prominently in an early scene in the story of the Trojan War, which is a central part of ancient Greek and Roman culture. You can look up “Apple of Eris” online if you want to read that part of the story. She gets very little mention otherwise in the old stories, so she mostly faded into the background for the past 2 millennia.
