How many church people does it take to change a light bulb?
(Laugh at Yourself!)
How may church people does
it take to change a light bulb?
Charismatic: Only one. Hands
already in the air.
Roman Catholics: None. They use candles.
Pentecostals: Ten. One to change the bulb, and nine to pray against the spirit of darkness.
Presbyterians: None. God has predestined when the lights will be on and off.
Episcopalians: Eight. One to call the electrician, and seven to say
how much they liked the old
Mormons: Five. One man to change the bulb, and four wives
to tell him how to do it.
Unitarians: We choose not to make a statement either in
favour of or against the need for light bulb. However, if in your
own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, that is fine. You are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your personal relationship with your light bulb, and present it next month at our
annual light bulb Sunday
service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including
incandescent, fluorescent, three-way, long-life and tinted, all of which are
equally valid paths to luminescence.
Baptists: At least 15. One to change the light bulb, and
two or three committees to approve the change. Oh, and also one to
provide a casserole.
Lutherans: None. Lutherans don't believe in change.
