A bowling alley for the youth group....now that's what I call "Church!" I'd just make the pins look like little demons and then convince the Ad Board that I'm training the teenagers for spiritual warfare!

Seriously, that was good for a laugh. Unfortunately, there are too many congregation members who probably have that exact view of giving: "I'm paying the church for the services it gives to ME."

I like this one on clothing

Oh, now we know, don't we? I laughed, I cried, I raised an eyebrow. Change the script just a little, and I wouldn't be surprised to see this during one of those oh-so-popular TV preacher shows that people are so eager to talk about. Thanks, brother, for the reminder.

Joe - The one on clothing hit a little too close to home!

What about the bagels on Sunday morning?

Greg Cox said...

Does that mean because I technically let the plate pass me by two out of four weeks a month that I don't get donuts on those sundays?

Sorry bro'... I thought it was a bit funny but I still love my UM brothers in collars.

By the way, I don't remember Terry Wardle wearing the collar growing up. Has that become more popular in the last decade or was he just more of a rebel against the norm in the UM church?

It's just me and a few others...still not too common. And, for me, it's only on Sundays or for funerals or hospitals; most "office days" or visitation days or community ministry days, I'm dressed down. Here's a nice little article about that.

The position outlined in the article seems just as reasonable as any other one.
