preacher3A new member of a church is talking to the Pastor: "You have such a small congregation. How can they afford to pay you?"

The Pastor said, "Well, I only earn $60 a week."

The man is dumbfounded. "Pastor, how can you possibly get by on an amount that small?"

"Well I tell ya, if I wasn't such a religious man and didn't fast three days a week, I'd probably starve to death."

moving boxesWhen we moved cross-country, my wife and I decided to drive both of our cars. Nathan, our eight-year-old, worriedly asked, "How will we keep from getting separated?"

"We'll drive slowly so that one car can follow the other," I reassured him.

"Yeah, but what if we DO get separated?" he persisted.

"Well, then I guess we'll never see each other again," I quipped.

"Okay," he said. "I'm riding with Mom."
