The Lighter Side of Easter
The Childrens Sermon Strikes Again
Easter Sunday morning arrived and once again it was time for Childrens Sermon. With all the boys and girls gathered around him the Pastor asked -- "What was empty on Easter morning"?
Not missing a beat, one of the little girls grabbed ahold of the microphone and boldly declared -- "My Easter basket!"
It was that time during the Sunday morning service for "the Children's Sermon". All the children were invited to come forward and one little girl was wearing a particularly pretty dress. As she sat down the Pastor leaned over and said to her, "That is a very pretty dress. Is it your Easter dress?"
The little girl replied, directly into the pastor's clip-on microphone, "Yes, and my Mom says it's a real pain to iron."
One Easter, a family (Mom, Dad, boy age 9) that seldom went to church, decided to go.
After church the Mom said, "I thought the choir was a little off key."
Then the Dad said, "Well, the preacher's message was bland, too."
Whereupon the boy said, "I thought they put on a good show for the nickle you put in the collection plate."
