The Young Priest
The elderly priest, speaking to the younger priest, said, "It was
a good idea to replace the first four rows of pews with plush bucket
theatre seats. It worked like a charm. The front of the church always
fills first now."
The young priest nodded, and the old priest continued, "And you
told me a little more beat to the music would bring young people back to
the church, so I supported you when you brought in that
rock 'n roll gospel choir. We are packed to the balcony!!"
"Thank you, Father," answered the young priest. "I am pleased that
you are open to the new ideas of youth."
"However," said the elderly priest, "I'm afraid you've gone too
far with the drive-thru confessional."
"But, Father," protested the young priest, "my confessions and the
donations have nearly doubled since I began that!"
"I know, son, but that flashing neon sign, Toot 'n Tell or Go To
Hell, just can't stay on the church roof!"
I love the smell of Hoppe's #9 in the morning.
