Laughter Is Good Medicine….


A cheerful disposition is good for your health; gloom and doom leave you bone-tired.  Prov. 17:22

There are a lot of things to worry and fret about … but today I want to have a laugh.  These have been around for a while but always seem to get a good chuckle. I hope you enjoy…

How many _________ does it take to change a light bulb?

EMERGENTS: Who is really behind the light bulb changing agenda anyway? Is this just an example of traditional, top-down control? We really need to break out of old paradigms – why do we have to get out a ladder every time one of the bulbs stops emitting light? Why not embrace the new situation and try to find the inherent beauty of God in it instead of tossing it aside for our own dogmatic goals and perspective?

PENTECOSTALS: 10 – One to change the bulb, and nine to pray against the spirit of darkness.

SOUTHERN BAPTISTS: About 16,000,000. However, they are badly divided over whether changing the bulb is a fundamental need or not. 

CONSERVATIVE ANGLICANS: Three. One to change it And two to storm out in protest if the person changing it is a woman!

PRESBYTERIANS: None – Lights will go on and off at predestined times.

BAPTISTS: At least 15 – One to change the light bulb, and three committees to approve the change and decide who brings the potato salad and fried chicken.

METHODISTS: This statement was issued. “We chose not to make a statement either in favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your own journey, you have found that a light bulb works for you, that’s fine. You are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your personal relationship with your light bulb (or light source, or non-dark resource), and present it next month at our annual light bulb Sunday service, in which we explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, fluorescent, three-way, long-life, and tinted all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence.”

CHARISTMATICS: One, since his/her hands are in the air anyway.   OR   Three, one to cast it out and two to catch it when it falls!    OR      Twenty one, one to change it, and twenty to share the experience! 

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

EPISCOPALIANS:  Four. One to change the bulb. One to bless the elements. One to pour the sherry. And one to offer a toast to the old light bulb.
