Funny Church Signs

Funny Church Signs (Photo credit: au_tiger01)

A church was surrounded by grounds full of trees. This brought a problem. The squirrels from these grounds were fearlessly scooting around inside the church.

One day, a meeting was called to decide what to do about the pesky squirrels. After much prayer and consideration it was determined that the squirrels were predestined to be there and they shouldn’t interfere with God’s divine will.

Months passed and the problems grew more severe. There was a real danger of stepping on one inadvertently and squashing it under the feet.

A meeting was called again. After much deliberation, it was decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God’s creation. They humanely trapped the squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town. Three days later, the squirrels were back.

More months passed. There was an unfortunate incident and a meeting was convened urgently. Suggestions flowed easily including one calling for a pied-piper. Finally they settled on an idea which might just work: they baptized the squirrels and registered them as members of the church.

It worked. Now they only see them at Christmas and Easter.

    Hahaha! Love the signboard, too!
    Mind you, if it had been one of the Evangelist groups, the place might have ended up knee-deep in squirrels!

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.
