Sinvigorate

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: sin vig orayt

Sentence: The message in Brother James' sermon was meant to sinvigorate his congregation. He told them that as long as they were spending so much of their earnings on Christmas presents and parties, they should donate the same amount to his Church of the Everlasting Redemption. He also told them that having money leftover from their Christmas spending could provide temptation to spend unwisely and lead them to sin, so they could save themselves by donating more to his good works. His parishoners blindly gave to his church in order to receive salvation, but wondered how the good Brother James could afford to drive a Cadillac and fly so often to crusades in Hawaii, Monaco and Las Vegas. The Lord does work in mysterious ways indeed.

Etymology: Sin (commit a sin; violate a law of God or a moral law;commit a faux pas or a fault or make a serious mistake) & Invigorate (impart vigor, strength, or vitality to;give life or energy to; to heighten or intensify)
