Church Ladies with Typewriters

As a kid, the ONLY thing that made church bearable was proofreading the church bulletin....there was at least one gem a week, and even if all I found was a typo it was enough for my snotty teenage self to drive my mother bonkers (these days not even a church lady with a typewriter is enough to get me thru those church doors, but that will be a story for another day).

For now, here are some of the best from this year's church bulletins:
The Fasting & Prayer Conference includes meals.

----------------------------------------------------------
The sermon this morning: "Jesus Walks on the Water."
The sermon tonight: "Searching for Jesus."

----------------------------------------------------------
Our youth basketball team is back in action Wednesday at 8 PM in the
recreation hall. Come out and watch us kill Christ the King.

Ladies, don't forget the rummage sale. It's a chance to get rid of those
things not worth keeping around the house. Bring your husbands.

----------------------------------------------------------
The peacemaking meeting scheduled for today has been canceled due to a
conflict.

----------------------------------------------------------
Remember in prayer the many who are sick of our community. Smile at
someone
who is hard to love. Say "Hell" to someone who doesn't care much about
you.

---------------------------------------------------------
Don't let worry kill you off - let the Church help.

---------------------------------------------------------
Miss Charlene Mason sang "I will not pass this way again," giving obvious

---------------------------------------------------------
A bean supper will be held on Tuesday evening in the church hall. Music
will

gracious hostility.
