Church Humour

This is a hilarious post from The Highland Shepherd that shows the importance of good writing and editing.

Church Ladies and Typewriters

Thank God for church ladies with typewriters. These sentences actually appeared in church bulletins or were announced in church services:

  1. Bertha Belch, a missionary from Africa, will be speaking tonight at Calvary Methodist. Come hear Bertha Belch all the way from Africa.
  2. Announcement in a church bulletin for a national PRAYER & FASTING Conference: “The cost for attending the Fasting & Prayer Conference includes meals.”
  3. The sermon this morning: “Jesus Walks on the Water.” The sermon tonight: “Searching for Jesus.”
  4. “Ladies, don’t forget the rummage sale. It’s a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Don’t forget your husbands.
  5. The peacemaking meeting scheduled for today has been cancelled due to a conflict.
  6. Remember in prayer the many who are sick of our community. Smile at someone who is hard to love. Say “Hell” to someone who doesn’t care much about you.
  7. Don’t let worry kill you off – let the Church help.
