I feel sorry for reference librarians and the people that mind information booths. There was once a time when those skills depended solely on your knowledge compared to other people. Now they have to compete with search engines. At least the human touch can be much more friendly than the Googled version.
I look at the guy who is trying to flatter the pastor as clueless. Perhaps he has grabbed on to a phrase that he has no clue about and just wants to sound sophisticated.
When you shake hands with your pastor this morning, be sure your complement suggests you actually heard and retained the sermon within your good old noggin.
What would we do without our vowels?
W_’d b_ _n _ l_t _f tr_ _bl_! Thank you, Wheel of Fortune! You probably bought all the vowels and caused a shortage for this pastor.
Cartoon of a woman answering a telephone. She says, “No thank you. I am pretty sure our church does not need a DNA testing machine.”
I am not sure a genetic testing machine would make background checks in children’s and youth ministry easier. But all the same, I think churches will have no need for this office machine of the future. Actually, I hope the average office won’t need it either!
Maintenance issues abound at churches, especially the older ones. I never attended a church that had a belfry. But I wish I did so I could say at least once there were bats in the belfry. It seems squirrels in the attic would create an equally erratic outcome.
