Christmas Cards

A Woman went to the Post Office to buy stamps for her Christmas cards. “What denomination?” Asked the clerk. “Oh, good heavens! Have we come to this?” said the woman. “Well give me 50 Church of Scotland and 50 Methodist ones.”

Parcel

The Meenister’s Log

It’s always annoying when you’re at home, but the postman puts a card through your letterbox saying that they tried to deliver a parcel but nobody was in.

Many years ago, before this system was introduced, a minister who was so engrossed in writing his sermon and didn’t hear the doorbell, got a phone call from the Post Office informing him of the failed delivery of his parcel

 “Ah, John, that will be the temperance pamphlets that I ordered from 121 (Church of Scotland HQ at 121 George Street, Edinburgh)”

“Well, Rev, I suggest that you come here as soon as possible to collect your parcel – your pamphlets are starting to leak!”

Post Office

The Meenister’s Log

The Reverend Billy Graham tells of a time early in his ministry when he arrived in a small town to preach a sermon. Wanting to mail a letter, he asked a young boy where the post office was.

When the boy had told him, Dr. Graham thanked him and said, “If you’ll come to the Church this evening, you can hear me telling everyone how to get to Heaven.” 

“I don’t think I’ll be there,” the boy said. “You don’t even know your way to the post office.”
