Sometimes We Just Gotta Laugh

Sometimes Christians and churches  get so serious because life is serious business and so is trying to reach the lost.  But we have a Creator with a sense of humor, and I can’t help but wonder if sometimes He doesn’t help us slip up every now and then to make us all lighten up.  After all, He tells us A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength.

Anyone who has written anything from letters to articles knows how sometimes no matter how much we proof read, some error always seems to get through.

I’m sure folks have read these kinds of posts in e mails, but I thought it’d be fun to read church bulletins which contain some hilarious and somewhat embarrassing grammar mistakes.

Due to the Pastor’s illness, Wednesday’s healing services will be discontinued until further notice.
