From Bud's World

If you have a lot of tension and you get a headache, do what it says on the aspirin bottle: "Take two and keep away from the children."
Holy Family in a Plane
A Sunday school teacher asked her students to draw a picture of Jesus' family. After collecting the drawings, she noticed that one little boy's drawing depicted an airplane with four heads sticking out of the windows. “I see you drew three heads to show Joseph, Mary and Jesus,” she said to the boy.
“But who does the fourth head belong to?”
The boy replied, “That's Pontius the pilot.”

I was just wondering…
Is yawning really contagious?
Why do we wait until a pig is dead to “cure” it?
If firefighters fight fires, and crime fighters fight crime, what do freedom fighters do?

From the Choir Loft
“Hide it under a bushel…NO! I’m gonna let it shine.” You know those words to ‘Let it shine.’ We provide the opportunity and privilege of singing for the Lord. We make it as easy as we possibly can to join us in the church choir. We have a brief rehearsal following each Sunday morning’s service (15 – 20 minutes). We also have a 30 minute rehearsal each Tuesday evening. The choir is growing and I give you my word that I will make it as fun as I possibly can. Please just come and join us, or call me (934-7734) if you have any questions.
