Meeting of the Board:
We say that God isn't impressed with large numbers
and man shouldn't be depressed with small ones.
And that's true.
But it's a fact that a full sanctuary leaves a positive impact
on the people in the pew as well as on the pastor in the pulpit.
All of which says that when we are absent without good reason,
everyone stands to lose.
An item from a church newsletter makes this point in a unique way.
It's entitled, “Calling a Meeting of the Board:”
"The board of absentees will meet each time a service of the church is in session.
They will discuss various ways of keeping attendance as low as possible.
They will endeavor to see that there is no enthusiasm, and help to decrease the offerings.
The board will also seek to weaken the pastor's influence, and plan various ways
to hinder any revival efforts and all visitation programs in or by the church.
The board of absentees is composed of the following members:
Mr. I.M. Unconcerned,
Mrs O.U. Hypocrite,
Mr. and Mrs. U.R. Lazy,
Mrs. C. Others, and
Mr. I.M. Disgruntled, chairman."
See: Heb 10:24-25; Heb 13:17
Church Members Are Like:
A lot of members are like wheelbarrows -- not good unless pushed.
Some are like canoes -- need to be paddled.
Some are like kites -- if a string isn't kept on them, they fly away.
Some are like kittens -- more contented when petted.
Some are like balloons -- full of wind and ready to blow up.
Some are like footballs -- you can't tell which way they'll bounce next.
Some are like trailers -- they have to be pulled.
Some are like neon lights -- they keep going on and off.
Many, thank goodness, are like the North Star -- there when you need them, dependable and ever loyal."
See: Phil 1:27

An ad for St. Joseph's Episcopal Church has a picture of two hands
holding stone tablets on which the Ten Commandments are inscribed
and a headline that reads, "For fast, fast, fast relief, take two tablets".
When the restaurant next to the Lutheran Church put out a big sign
with red letters that said, "Open Sundays," the church reciprocated
with its own message: "We are open on Sundays, too.
People are like tea bags -- you have to put them in hot water

Wanted In A Pastor:
When a church seeks a pastor, they want the strength of an eagle,
the grace of a swan, the gentleness of a dove,
the friendliness of a sparrow, and the night hours of an owl.
And when they catch that bird, they expect the pastor to live on the food of a canary.
Sundays To Be Absent:
You often stress attendance at worship as being very important for a Christian,
but I think a person has a right to miss now and then.
I think every person ought to be excused for the following reasons
and the number of times indicated:
Christmas (Sunday before or after)
New Year (Party lasted too long)
Easter (Get away for holidays)
July 4 (National holiday)
Labor Day (Need to get away)
Memorial Day (Visit hometown)
School Closing (Kids need break)
School Opens (One last fling)
Family Reunions (Mine & wife's)
Sleep late (Saturday night activities)
Deaths in Family
Anniversary (Second honeymoon)
Sickness (One per family member)
Business Trips (A must)
Vacation (Three weeks)
Bad Weather (Ice, snow, rain, clouds)
Unexpected Company (Can't walk out)
Time changes (Spring ahead; fall back)
Special on TV (Super Bowl, etc.)
Pastor, that leaves only two Sundays per year.
So, you can count on us to be in church on the fourth Sunday in February
and the third Sunday in August unless providentially hindered.
A Faithful Member
See: Heb 10:25
The prayer of Bud Robinson: (a preacher of years ago)
"O God, give me a backbone as big as a saw-log
and ribs like the sleepers under this church.
Put iron shoes all my feet and galvanize my britches.
Hang a wagonload of determination of the gable end of my soul
and help me to sign a contract to fight the devil
as long as I've got a fist and bite him as long as I've got a tooth
and gum him till I die, for Jesus' sake, amen!"
Jesus Wanted By:
The FDA for turning water into wine without a license.
The EPA for killing fig trees.
The AMA for practicing medicine without a license.
The Dept. of Health for asking people to open graves, for raising the dead
and for feeding 5,000 people in the wilderness.
The NEA for teaching without a certificate.
OSHA for walking on water without a life-jacket and for flying without an airplane.
The SPCA for driving hogs into the sea.
The NATIONAL BOARD of PSYCHIATRISTS for giving advice on how to live a guilt-free life.
The NOW for not choosing a woman apostle.
The ABORTION RIGHTS LEAGUE for saying that whoever harms children,
it is better that they had never been born.
The INTER-FAITH MOVEMENT for condemning all other religions.
And by the ZONING DEPT for building mansions without a permit.
-- Warren W. Wiersbe, THE INTEGRITY CRISIS
(Nashville: Thomas Nelson Publishers, 1991), p. 22.
Never Heard In Church:
“Hey! It's my turn to sit on the front pew!”
”I was so enthralled, I never noticed your sermon went over time 25 minutes.”
“Personally, I find witnessing much more enjoyable than golf.”
“I've decided to give our church the $500.00 a month I used to send to TV evangelists.”
“I volunteer to be the permanent teacher for the Junior High Sunday School class.”
“Forget the minimum salary: let's pay our pastor so he can live like we do.”
“I love it when we sing hymns I've never heard before!”
“Since we're all here, let's start the worship service early!”
“Pastor, we'd like to send you to this Bible seminar in the Bahamas.”
“Nothing inspires me and strengthens my commitment like our annual stewardship campaign!”
The frenzied activities of Christians
have made someone revise the old nursery rhyme to read:
“Mary had a little lamb
‘Twas given her to keep
But then it join the Baptist Church
And died for lack of sleep.”
For The Sick:
A little girl came to church with her mother,
which was a well-known member of the church.
The little girl had eaten a large breakfast of 13 pancakes.
She became sick at her stomach and her mother told her
to go across the street from the church to a home, and there she could find relief.
At the close of the service, the mother said to the preacher,
"I suppose you noticed Mary had to get up and leave.
I sent her across the street to the home of a friend to find relief!"
"No, mother," said the little girl. "I didn't have to go across the street.
I used the box nailed there on the wall!"
She pointed to a contribution box beside the door
on which was a printed card with the words -- "For the sick!"
She had given all she had!
An old farmer went to the city one weekend and attended the big city church.
He came home and his wife asked him how it was.
"Well," said the farmer, "It was good. They did something different, however.
They sang praise choruses instead of hymns."
"Praise choruses," said his wife, "What are those?"
"Oh, they're okay. They're sort of like hymns, only different," said the farmer.
"Well, what's the difference?" asked the wife.
The farmer said, "Well, it's like this. If I were to say to you,
'Martha, the cows are in the corn,' well that would be a hymn."
"If on the other hand I was to say to you,
'Martha, Martha, Martha, Oh Martha, MARTHA, MARTHA, the cows, the big cows,
the brown cows, the black cows, the white cows, the black and white cows,
the COWS, COWS, COWS, are in the corn, are in the corn,
are in the corn, are in the corn,' . . .
"Well, that would be a praise chorus."
