Joke 596

9 Nov

From Will & Guy: some church magazine snippets.

1577 - Church Supper magazine?

  • New Carpet: There will be a discussion in May as to how we might raise funds for the new carpet.  All who wish to do something on the carpet should come forward and do so now.
  • Baptisms: From now on, the North and South ends of the church will be utilised. Children will be baptised at both ends.
  • Try our healing services.  You won’t get better.
  • The rosebud on the altar this morning is to announce the birth of Roderick James Hillman, the sin of Revd. and Mrs. Hillman.

And a joke:

The Reverend Douglas Johnston was driving home from church when he had a minor bump with a cyclist, who was knocked off his bike into the ditch.

The Vicar stopped his car, got out and apologised.  He gave the cyclist his calling card, saying that if he could ever be of help, then the man should not hesitate to ask.

As the man rode home he looked at the card which said, The Reverend Douglas Johnston is sorry he missed you today.

    I had to read the rosebud one three times before I spotted the “sin” instead of “son.” Ha ha!~

    As the person who usually types our church bulletins, I HAD to laugh. “Lord, HELP me not to make any of these mistakes! AMEN! 😉


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
