A little humour is good for the soul


Just taking a break from my Deuteronomy study for lunch and a little web-surfing and came across this:

A new vicar moved into town and went out one Saturday to visit his parishioners. All went well until he came to one house. It was obvious that someone was home, but no one came to the door even after he had knocked several times. Finally, he took out his card, wrote on the back 'Revelation 3:20' and stuck it in the door. The next day, he found his card in the collection plate. Below his verse was written the words 'Genesis 3:10'.

It made me giggle.

A true story;
the young curate of many moons ago (now a bishop) is sent out on a visit to an elderly lady in the parish. She invites him in and sits him in the front room, while she goes off to make the tea.
He's looking around the room to get a feel for the kind of life his hostess has led, when his eyes fall upon a picture of an elderly and eminent priest, in pride of place on the wall.
When the tea arrives, they sit down and the curate opens the conversation with "so was your father in the ministry then?"
The lady seems nonplussed, until she realises the curate is looking at the photo, "Oh no dear", she replied, "that's the Pope!"

Thanks Tim.
I wonder how you recover from something like that.
