Humour

The situation in my country is so unspeakable (don't talk about it) that a supper for veteran ministers resorted to the telling of jokes about golden oldie hymns from good Queen Victoria's era.  Try singing these for starters:

I’m on the pil(l), I’m on the pil(l), I’m on the pilgrim way...

I want a man, I want a man, I want a mansion in the sky.

Then there are jokes from church magazines.  Here is a selection:

Scouts are saving aluminum cans, bottles and other items to be recycled. Proceeds will be used to cripple children.

Irving Benson and Jessie Carter were married on October 24 in the church. So ends a friendship that began in their school days.

 The sermon this morning: 'Jesus Walks on the Water. ‘The sermon tonight: ‘Searching for Jesus.'

 Ladies, don't forget the rummage sale. It's a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Bring your husbands.

 Miss Charlene Mason sang 'I will not pass this way again,' giving obvious pleasure to the congregation.

 

 Don't let worry kill you off - let the Church help.

 

I could go on but you'll be glad to know I won't.  

Until  next week's blog -have fun!
