So there were these two boys...

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 12:02 AM

So there were these two boys — a Catholic and a Protestant. The two decide they wanted to learn more about the differences in their respective branches of Christianity, so they decided to attend each other's churches.

The first week, the Protestant boy went with the Catholic boy to mass. The Catholic boy explained the meaning of the various things the priest was doing, why they knelt, and so forth. The next week, the Catholic boy went with the Protestant boy to the Protestant church. The Protestant boy explained the meanings of various things the pastor was doing, and so forth. Then, right before the start of the sermon, the pastor took off his watch and placed it on the pulpit right in front of his notes so that he could see it very clearly.

The Catholic boy looked at the Protestant boy and said “What's that mean?”

“Absolutely nothing,” answered the Protestant boy.

Hehe, the pastor is going overtime whether the watch is there or not. :-) Classic Church humor. I haven’t heard a joke like that in awhile.

And the truth was spoken.

If we could get away from trying to limit Pastors to 15 min. we might actually get some preaching done. The content that is crammed into such a short sermon can hardly help but get redundant. I’m hoping our pastor will spread his wings a touch when we get the new building and don’t have 3 services back to back to limit time.
