A Time to Laugh and Learn
CHILDREN AND THE CHURCH
A little boy was attending his first wedding. After the service, his cousin asked him, "How many women can a man marry?"
"Sixteen," the boy responded. His cousin was amazed that he had an
answer so quickly. "How do you know that?"
"Easy," the little boy said.
"All you have to do is add it up, like the preacher said:
4 better, 4 worse, 4 richer, 4 poorer."

announced to his mother, "Mom, I've decided to become a minister When I grow up." "That's okay with us, but what made you decide that?"

three times what was wrong. Finally, the boy replied, "That preacher said he wanted us brought up in a Christian home, and I want to stay with you guys!"
Terri asked her Sunday School class to draw pictures of their
favorite Bible stories. She was puzzled by Kyle's picture, which showed
four people on an airplane, so she asked him which story it was meant to represent? The Flight to Egypt, was his reply.

Pastor Dave Charlton tells us, "After a worship service at First Baptist
Church in Newcastle, Kentucky, a mother with a fidgety seven-year
old boy told me how she finally got her son to sit still and be quiet.
About halfway through the sermon, she leaned over and whispered, 'If you
don't be quiet, Pastor Charlton is going to lose his place and will have to
start his sermon all over again!'
