We're halfway through the first month of the new year and have yet to take a humor break. Let's fix that today.
1. A pastor was presenting a children's sermon. During the sermon, he asked
the children if they knew what the resurrection was. Now, asking questions
during children's sermons is crucial, but at the same time, asking children
questions in front of a congregation can also be very dangerous.
Having asked the children if they knew the meaning of the resurrection, a little boy raised his hand. The pastor called on him and the little boy said, "I know that if you have a resurrection that lasts more than four hours you are supposed to call the doctor."
"Yeah", she said, with a tone of disappointment in her voice, "That's what they said the last time too . . . "
3. After a long, dry sermon, the minister announced that he wished to meet with the church board following the close of the service. The first man to arrive and greet the minister was a total stranger. "You misunderstood my announcement. This is a meeting of the board members," explained the minister. "I know," said the man, "but if there is anyone here more bored than I am, then I'd like to meet him."4. (Tammeus note: Believe this next one if you want to.) There are more churches in Las Vegas than casinos. During Sunday services at the offertory, some worshippers contribute casino chips as opposed to cash. Some are sharing their winnings - some are hoping to win. Since they get chips from so many different casinos, and they are worth money, the Catholic churches are required to send all the chips into the diocese for sorting. Once sorted into the respective casino chips, one junior priest takes the chips and makes the rounds to the casinos turning chips into cash. And he, of course, is known as The Chip Monk.

A WORD TO EGYPT'S LEADERS
The grand mufti of Egypt is calling for interfaith understanding, not religious police such as those employed in Saudi Arabia. Good for him. Let's hope the religious authoritarians who may not be part of Egypt's government listen.
