I’ve spoken a few times about the need in Munich for conformity, and the need to follow the rules. The whole society seems to be built on the idea of order, as if everyone will (and they often do) abide by the rules. But even with that in mind, it still cracked me up to see this sign outside the amazing St. Peter’s church. The church is the oldest in the inner city, and it’s original settlement dates back to the 8th century. The sign seems to limit just about everything, and I haven’t quite figured out what that fourth picture is telling me to NOT do. Is it dis-respectful to have your hands in your pockets in a church. If so, it’s the first I’ve heard of it. At any rate, careful what you do (and don’t do) in Munich churches. It certainly doesn’t make you feel all that welcome, but perhaps after 1300 years, that is not their primary goal.
