A pastor received a letter from a congregant. When he removed the letter from the envelope, it had one word written on it. “Fool!”
“Well, the sender signed the letter, but didn’t write anything else!” the pastor said.
At the Christmas Eve service at my church, the pastor, quizzing some children about the nativity, asked, ‘What gifts did the three wise men give the Christ child?”
“Gold,” one child yelled.
“Frankincense!” shouted another.
After a pause, third asked, “Gift Cards?”
A trooper pulls over a priest and immediately smells alcohol on his breath. The next thing he notices is an empty wine bottle lying on the passenger seat.
“Have you been drinking?’ the officer asks.
“Just water,” says the priest.
“Then why do I smell wine?”
The priest looks at the bottle and shouts, “Good Lord! He’s done it again!”
Let Me In If You Want In!
Sometimes in this time of the Covid-19 Virus, it’s difficult to find humor. The Ashtabula, Ohio Star Beacon reported this virus related story on April 1, 2020 and it’s no April Fool joke. The police chief in Orwell, a town in Ashtabula County, said that he read this story somewhere . It seems that a line for seniors waited about 7:45 a.m. at a grocery store that opens at 8 a.m. for the seniors only shopping that many stores have adopted during the Stay-at-Home dictate by Ohio’s governor. A young man came from the parking lot and tried to cut in at the front of the line. The seniors weren’t about to let him get away with it. An old lady beat him back with her cane.
The young man returned and tried to cut in again, but this time an old man punched him the gut and then kicked him to the ground and rolled him away.
Returning for a third try, the young man came faced the ferocious seniors and said, “If you don’t let me unlock the door, you’ll never get in there!”
Hard to Love
“Dear God, it must be super hard to love all the people in the world, especially my brother. I don’t know how You do it.”
