Well, I was on to more serious things yesterday on April Fools, so today it's time to make amends and offer you what passes for religious-themed humor.
1. A young man and a priest
are playing together. At a short par-3 the priest asks, "What are
you going to use on this hole, my son?"
The young man says, "An 8-iron, father. How about you?"
The priest says, "I'm going to hit a soft seven and pray."
The young man hits his 8-iron and puts the ball on the green. The priest tops his 7-iron and dribbles the ball out a few yards.
The young man says, "I don't know about you, father, but in my church, when we pray, we keep our head down."
2. A Sunday school teacher asked, "Johnny, do you think Noah did a lot of fishing when he was on the Ark?"
"No," replied Johnny. "How could he with just two worms?”
3. A golfer
teed up his ball on the first tee, took a mighty swing and hit his ball into a
clump of trees. He found his ball and saw an opening between 2 trees he thought
he could hit through.
Taking out his 3-wood, he took a mighty swing. The ball hit a tree, bounced back, hit him in the forehead and killed him.
As he approached the gates of Heaven, St. Peter asked, "Are you a good golfer?"
The man replied: "Got here in two, didn't I?”
4. A Sunday school teacher was telling her class the story of the Good Samaritan.
She asked the class, "If you saw a person lying on the roadside, all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?"
A thoughtful little girl broke the hushed silence: "I think I'd throw up."

PROMOTING 'THE BIBLE'
So did you watch "The Bible" miniseries on the History Channel? I watched some of it. Here's what I wrote after the first of five episodes. And here's an interesting piece about a guy who promoted the series and who tries to connect Hollywood types with evangelical Christian typs. If you watched, did you notice that in the scene of Paul's Damascus road experience he was thrown from a horse? A prize to the first person who can find a horse in the Bible's telling of that experience.
