Sunday Funnies

Once upon a time, there was a $50 bill and a $1 bill laying side by side on the conveyor belt at the Federal Reserve Building. The $1 bill said to the $50 bill, "Hey man, where have you been? I haven't seen you in a long time."

The $50 bill replied, "I’ve been having a ball! I've been traveling to distant countries, gone to the finest restaurants, to the biggest and best casinos, the mall uptown, the mall downtown, and the mall across town. I've been to Europe, a professional NBA game, the all day retreat spa, and the new casino! I have done it all!"

After describing his travels, the $50 bill asked the $1 bill, "What about you? Where have you been?"

The $1 bill replied, "Well, I've been to the Baptist church, the Methodist church, the Presbyterian church, the Episcopalian church the Church of God, the Catholic church, the Mormon church, the Disciple of Christ church, the... "

“Wait a minute! Wait a minute!” shouted the $50 bill, “What’s a church?"

Oh boy, my dad (the Methodist minister) would have loved this joke -- or rather non-joke.

Yes, it's one of those sad but truisms.

Oh, the many dollar bills that have entered the offering plate.

This reminds me of a video Courtney made to go along with a sermon a few months ago. It showed a line of people sitting in the church pew as the offering plate is passed. Two women begin to try and outdo one another... one puts in a ten dollar bill, then the other puts in a twenty... this goes on and on until they've put in jewelry, i-phones, and car keys.
It was a funny way of showing how we try to outdo one another when people are looking - like the Pharisees did in Jesus' day.
But when no one can see what we are doing, we tend to dole out the dollar bills instead of the big bucks.
