In the midst of relocating, closing one chapter, and opening another, it doesn’t leave much time for blogging. But…here’s a quick funny for you in honor of all the Methodist pastors who are also beginning a new chapter at their new appointments.
A new pastor was visiting the homes of his parishioners.
At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. Therefore, he took out a card and wrote “Revelation 3:20” on the back of it and stuck it in the door.
When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card has been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, Genesis 3:10.
Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter.
Revelation 3:20 begins, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock.”
Genesis 3:10 reads, “I heard your voice in the garden and I was afraid, for I was naked.”
May we always maintain our sense of humor.
Prayer focus: Those beginning new chapters in their lives.
