'FunnyYou Should Say That!'



 

On these pages we publish  jokes, cartoons and oddities,  with a Christian connection, as well as a few that aren't religious, but which caught the website manager's fancy. Apologies are unreservedly offered to any individual or publication we have not been able to trace and acknowledge or who would have preferred not to share the joke with a wider public. Apologies likewise tendered to those who are not amused by what they read or see, or who may find any item not entirely politically correct. No apologies to those who feel that a Church website is no place for such things - we are happy to believe that God has a sense of humour, otherwise he would not have created the human race, let alone the people of Saint Faith's in general and the website manager in particular. It goes without saying that any perceived bias or incorrect thinking contained or implied by these various offerings in no way reflects the views of our church or any of its members... although many of them share this writer's unreconstructed sense of humour.

If you have a joke - or a source of humour - you would like to share, then please get in touch. Visitors are more than welcome to share, publish or plagiarise these items!

Apologies for any missing cartoons.

Perils of the Pulpit

 

The Revd Steve Morris, a London priest, warn new clergy to manage their expectations. 
After one of his very first services, a parishioner came up to ask if he wrote his sermons down and if he could have a copy. 
He wrote in ‘Christian Today’ that he felt a “flurry of pride” and wondered if the man wanted to keep it for posterity or to go over its message again. 
The worshipper replied, “No, Steve.  I fell asleep as you started speaking and only woke up when you said ‘Amen’.”

Loss of Faculties




To mark the 600th posting, this splendid cartoon is resurrected, without apology.
The editor fondly remembers  an archdeacon making similar noises over a less dramatic breach
 of ecclesiastical standing orders many years ago at St Faith's. 
 The phrase 'strictly speaking' is wonderfully C of E ...
