To Set the Record Straight

I want to clear the air once and for all. I never agreed with the Civil War. There was nothing civil about it! I have always believed things could have been settled in a more civilized manner. I'm glad it's over.

Awkward Encounters



Jim Pemberton said in a previous post...

Before I joined a Southern Baptist congregation, I was a Lutheran. I had joined when my dad married a Lutheran after my mom died although my ecclesiological sensibilities were Baptistic having been baptized a couple years earlier in an anabaptist church. As such, I was taken in by a less-than-traditional independent Baptist family who added me as a tenor to their musical group. The pastor of one particularly fundamental church we sang in found out I belonged to a Lutheran church and exclaimed, "If I knew he was a Lutheran, I would never have let him sing here!"

This triggered a memory of the time I was baptized. I had been saved only a few weeks. I had been a drug-using, rock musician with hair down to my shoulders. I had my hair cut, but not enough for an independent Baptist little old lady. After my baptism, I was being congratulated by many in the congregation, who were expressing their love and blessings for God's mercy and grace on my behalf. This little lady, who I remember had an angry look on her face, came up to me and said, "Why do you wear your hair like THAT!" I didn't know what to say, I just stammered while my joy was punched in the stomach. 
Have you ever had an "awkward encounter" with a Christian or an unbeliever?

Rejected Magazine Cover


Not all covers submitted are used. This cover almost made it to print.

Once is Enough

Have you ever visited a church or just gone into a service, sat down and wished you could get up and run out?
In Mesquite, Texas, fifteen or sixteen years ago, my wife and I entered a church that started an hour later than our home church. (We were so late that we decided to visit that church instead of slinking into ours in the middle of the sermon.)
The first thing I noticed was that none of the men had a beard or mustache. Fact is, no male there had sideburns that were more than half an inch in length. The pastor had a "throne" type chair where he continually stared at me and my wife. The only person who said anything to us was the lady we sat next to. The songs were sung at a faster speed than normal and the invitation the pastor gave lasted longer than his sermon. I had also brought the wrong translation. I don't think anything other than the KJV was welcome, even if you were just a guest. I felt a little like the guy in this comic panel...


Have you ever had an uncomfortable experience while visiting a church?

That's why "add" is spelled wrong.
Now see if you can come up with something clever or funny...or both.

Balloon Talk #1



Ever so often I will post a photo with an empty balloon for you to fill. Remember the Calvinistic Cartoons K.I.T. formula - Keep It Theological. I will pick one comment that I think is funny and fill in the balloon giving credit to the "winner". Don't worry about the size of the balloon, I can adjust it to your dialog. Just keep it short as possible. Only fill in the balloon - don't add other dialog from someone else in the photo. Have fun and enjoy the laughs!

A Blogger's Vexation



Also Heartless


Corky and I at the Potato Head Playhouse


This review was taken from Theater Happenings magazine.
It was written by Sir David Pettibone"


"Vern Wallnecker’s problem play – about an upper-crust British family that is shaken to its core – gets a solid, stiff-upper-lipped revival at Flamboils’s intimate 62-year-old Potato Head Playhouse.
Director Fritz McMann peoples Lulu Hackensack’s richly paneled set with a cast that sounds veddy, veddy British and looks the part, too, in costumes by Sissy Dublin.
It is 1912 and the Kinklebean's are celebrating the engagement of their daughter, Sheila, to the son of Mr. Kinklebean’s business rival. This marriage may portend a merger between the companies.
But the bliss is interrupted by the arrival of Inspector Goole, who has questions about a young woman’s recent suicide. Before the night is out, everyone is implicated in some way in the demise of Eva Smith.
Wallnecker, who wrote the play in 1945, was making a larger point: Everyone’s actions, or inactions, affect humanity; we are our brothers’ keeper. If the inspector lays it on a little thick – and he does – well, that’s what it takes to get through that thick British crust.
Eddie Eddings is a standout (love the space helmet) as the sincere Thomas Earwig, as is Emily Maggots as Sheila, his bride to be.
Susan Brickfoot, as Mrs. Kinklebean, is spot-on as a preening woman of society who looks down her nose at everyone. Kip Loman as the rakish young Eric Kinklebean  captures the character’s disdain for his family, even as he takes advantage of it.
Leo Lawnwagon has a better command of his blustery character, patriarch Arthur Kinklebean, than he does of his lines, making for some uncomfortable moments.
As the inspector, Russ Birdhamper is investigator, prosecutor and judge, making a “nasty mess” of the Kinklebean's polite dinner party. 
Corky Velveeta has not a single line or dialog until the final speech, but his presence on stage helps remind the audience that they are ignorant of so many things.  
His final speech is a haunting bit of monologue, akin to Jacob Marley’s ghostly “mankind was my business” speech in Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.”
“A Grenade in the Mist” is a style of show that isn’t performed often, and the Potato Head Playhouse is to be commended for tackling it and, for the most part, delivering a solid effort.
I only wish I seen a movie instead."

Even More Predictions

Vernon Fluffenutter, the pastor of the Church of the Now Ready for End Time Prayers, said his prophecies are 100% accurate or you can stone him if they are not fulfilled by the year 2045!

Here are a few of his latest prophetic utterances he made while in mid-sermon:

On Earth Day in the year 2044, the White House will be repainted and called the Green House. 

An Oprah clone named Koprah will come out with her own magazine called, OK.

In the year 2044 Roman Catholic pope, Fern Tallowitz, will fall into an open manhole. 

Rick Warren's very last book, The Monkey-Driven Evolutionists, will be made into a 3-D TV movie starring Miley Cyrus.

The Federated States of Micronesia, in the year 2043, will declare war on bloggers. Many thousands will lose their lives in the struggle for cyber real estate. 

Church, as we know it, will not be like the church as we know it. But the underground church, as we can imagine, will be just like you imagine.

Frosted Flakes will cease to exist.

Corky Velveeta will be added to Mount Rushmore by mistake.
