OH that is too funny. I have a friday funnies meme and would love for you to link up to it Friday with that if you can remember. That is hilarious.
Blessings to you.

I have a cherished memory of inviting a newly saved friend to church and she came in late so we weren't sitting together. (That could be good and bad - LOL) She was near the front and kept raising her hand during the sermon and finally the pastor said, "I'll answer your questions individually after the service." You gotta love it.

As you know, I am STRONGLY considering finding a new church. Thank goodness for these tips! I'll keep these in mind. I suppose this applies to your church too so when we come I'll leave the small rodents at home....except for the ones with only 2 feet. No blogging in church!

I used to write and produce instructional videos, so I loved the set-up of this--they are often so plastic (the forced turning to the video and back to the camera--love it!), and this one fit the bill.

Of course, I'm waiting for the blog that answers the question How DO you fit in church....... (That sounds like an Edie "Random Question".)

And, I'm sure your dad would approve of how the reptile issue was addressed ;-)

Very funny. And thanks to Sue J I might have a RQ for this Friday! LOL

That was funny!

How about bring someone a pizza to church? My mom once asked a couple that had been visiting her church for about a year what it was gong to take to get them to go ahead and join? The man jokingly said, "Maybe a pizza." You got it the next Sunday my mom came in the sanctuary with a pipping hot large Papa John's supreme!

Love ya!

I loved that. This past week someone's cell phone went off and she actually answered it and held a conversation. After she hung up she only stayed about 10 minutes then she left. I guess she had something more important to do.

One other thing is...No kissing in Church. I mean a little peck on the cheek would be ok but no full on the mouth kissing. I saw that once.

I enjoyed watching this again, and again, and again b/c I kept showing it to different family members. The "snake handling" part was funny to me. My grandfather was one of the first ministers in our Pentecostal denomination. Unbelievers used to bring snakes to the "brush arbor" meetings in order to test the minister and the scripture that Mark writes in (Mark 16:17,18). I realize that some believe that those "signs that follow those who believe" were limited to the Apostolic Age. Regardless, God protected my grandfather and even gave him discernment when a group tried to trick and embarrass him w/what proved to be a frog in a paper bag. Without even taking hold of the bag, my grandfather discerned there was no snake and said as much. Believers were added to the church that night!
Thanks for the video-I laughed!

Man...that was the trouble I had at my last church, well, NOW I know, LOLOL - just kidding! That was funny.

This wasn't exactly funny for me till the ferrets came out.
Now -- the fact checking of the pastor's sermon. . . Funny? Yes. But, sadly this does happen -- Doctrinal Checking too. (DH is a pastor - I've defended him many times!)
Please tell me this: What happens if the PASTOR's CELL PHONE rings?
OH MY!!!!
Thank you for sharing this!
Kindest Thoughts,

Susan said...

Hope you have a blessed weekend♥
