Blog Lite

On a less serious note.....

On our way into church on Sunday, we saw a couple of cans of Bud Light on the sidewalk. I told my boys to run back and put them in the van.

Aside from a quick discussion with my husband about whether it was legal for the boys to carry beer in the parking lot, I didn't really think anything of it.

The incongruity of finding free beer on the way into church is amusing to me.

I can hear my canadian friends saying, "that's not real beer!"
Actually, I don't really like beer and will probably use it for cooking.

The southern baptists are having an interesting rehashing of law vs. grace over on Steve McCoy's blog.

I love bapists, my MIL is baptist, and my sweet next-door neighbor is a king-james-only, can't-wear-pants baptist. So, if you're a baptist, please don't take the following joke personally.

Q: Why should you never ask one Baptist over to watch football with you, but instead always invite two?

A: Invite one, he'll drink all your beer. Invite two and neither of them will drink a drop!

As a Canadian, I have a confession to make... This is difficult... I have... never... tried beer!

In fairness, there are MANY Canadian churches who have the exact same attitude towards drinking alcohol as you find there.

At any rate, a pleasant post (with a GREAT joke). Here's another one:

How many Evangelicals does it take to change a lightbulb?

Change? CHANGE?!? What are you talking ab-...

Peace,

Good one Jamie.

Here's another:

Q: How many tv evangelists does it take to change a lightbulb?

A: One. But for the message of light to continue to go forth, send in your donation today.

Rich said...

Ok, I have to add one... :)

Q: What is the difference between Catholics and Baptists?

A: Catholics will talk to you in the package store.

BTW, I enjoyed your string of posts on spiritual abuse...

One of our clients is a retired lawyer. The other day he asked me how much peace and love it takes to change a light bulb. The answer? "Peace and love have nothing to do with light bulbs. The point is moot."

I'm thinking, hey, that's got to be a lawyer joke.

Ok, I hope this doesn't high jack the comments, but I have another. It is often used for YWAMer's (of which I am one, though not of this variety):

Q: How many YWAMer's does it take to change a light bulb?

A: 5. 1 to change the bulb, 4 to bind the spirit of darkness in the room.

Ba-da-boom...

Peace,
Jamie

LOL!

Those are funny.

It seems to be an appropriate use of the comment section for this post. :)

Okay, if fun is the order of the day...

Then here's a whole list of Christian light bulb jokes.

Also, here's a link to an old post on Star Wars Denominations.

Enjoy!

Ok, Here's another one told to me by a Baptist pastor.

Two Baptists walk into a bar.

grace said...

Those were great Robby.

Jamie, your last one is one of my favorites.

Here is a link to a post by Jim Gilbert about an Evangelical Leaders Golf Tournament. I thought it was really funny.

Sorry I don't know how to do quick links in a comment.

Grace,

Thanks for the link. That is awesome! Ok, emergent has been around long enough that we need our own light bulb jokes. Anyone care to take a stab at it?

Q: How many "emergent" Christians does it take to change a light bulb?

A: ???

Ephrem Christopher Walborn said...

Jamie, light bulbs are just a traditional, historical construct limiting our ability to grow. BE THE LIGHT.

How's that?

Grey Owl said...

Heh. Good answer ephrem.

Here's one for those of us scots who married mennonites... (you know who you are)

Q: How many mennonites does it take to change a lightbulb?

A: What's a lightbulb?

Hope this thread is more relaxing than your previous few posts Grace!
