Normally, women are considered bad luck on a sailing ship, but due to the shortage of sail cloth we will make an exception.
The H.M.S. Prosperity's crew were confident of a trouble-free voyage thanks to Goodwife Parsley's hand stitched prayer cloths.
Look, Hastings, I can see the flag. We're almost there... wait a minute. What is a Cru? I thought we would find someone who could tell us about Christ. Afterall, that is why we set out on this journey. A Cru can't help us. Come about and head toward the north. Maybe we'll find a Christ assembly there...Moral: When trying to lead others to Christ, maybe you should include His name with yours...
I am the very model of a major big church minister.I preach health and wealth, easy b'lievin', and I'm seeker sensible.Don't ask me how to exegete,I don't know how, and so I cheat,Preach what I want to text to say,The major modern pastor way.
Donald and Eric Klondike had tried, without success, to dissuade Mother from accompanying them on their trans-Atlantic voyages. The only thing they could do now was to ignore her and focus their attention elsewhere.But what her sons did not know, and what she did know, was that the sounding board that was set up on the focsle was for George Whitefield. And in a few minutes, the ship that Eric sees through his spyglass will pass close aboard to their port beam, and Reverend Whitfield will emerge from his cabin to preach a Gospel that could wake the dead.Mom never could pass up a chance to hear the preaching of George Whitefield.
@ Meghan SmithNicely done. Pirates of Penzance. How fast can you sing it? ; )
Madam, I believe I have spotted the Island of Free Will...and thank you for this rose-colored spyglass!
Next time, O'Malley, remind me to hire a crew and not a Cru... we're not more than 50 yards more out to sea than when we weighed anchor 2 hours ago...
"Calvinist Pirates on the starboard side!""How can you tell, Cap'n?""I see one of them reading Arrrrr. C. Sproul."
@Meghan: I like your Gilbert & Sullivan rendition.
Oddly, I don't know all the words, so I can't sing it that fast. But I do know the tune.
There's emergents on the starboard bow. Scrape 'em off, Jim!
"Aha, Aremnia! Let's ready the cannons!"
"Am I the only one who sees that strange man in a green egg costume floating in the water. What is that written on his costume?"
"Egads! There's a man in a space helmet flying a biplane! And another man in a green costume that's riding on top! Where are they going I wonder?"
Wait-a-minute! Isn't that Christopher Cross at the helm??
@ Persis"I see one of them reading Arrrrr. C. Sproul."LOL,ROTDAFOTLQ *....* Laughing out loud, rolling on the deck and falling off the larboard quarter.**.(** Even though I was in the navy for 4 years, I don't have a clue as to what a "Larboard Quarter" is : )
@ Ellery"...shortage of sail cloth..."Priceless!!! : )
I believe "Larboard" is an archaic word for Port(side) ( as opposed to starboard) and comes from the German laden meaning to load.So it's the loading side of the ship as opposed to the stearing side, I think. - Seriously, not a joke!(Now, why can't I think of something profound, witty and theological?)
Arrrrrr C. Sproul. I literally laughed out loud. :D
Capt. Jack Parrot was trying to find himself. His brother Jim just wished Jack would make up his mind and pick a direction. There mother was just happy her boys were finally doing something together.
