The Church – Changing With the Times

The elderly priest, speaking to the younger priest, said, ”You had a

good idea to replace the first four pews with plush bucket theater

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 adding a little more beat to the music would bring young people

back to church, so I supported you when you brought in that rock ‘n

roll gospel choir. Now our services are consistently packed to the

balcony.”

”Thank you, Father,” answered the young priest. ”I am pleased that

you are open to the new ideas of youth.”

”All of these ideas have been well and good,” said the elderly

priest, ”But 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!”

”Yes,” replied the elderly priest, ”and I appreciate that. But the

flashing neon sign, ‘Toot ‘n Tell or Go to Hell’ cannot stay on the

church roof!”
