A new preacher told his wife he was going to preach on water skiing, she said “You can’t preach on water skiing, if you do I am not going”, so she stayed home in the house behind the church as the preacher listened to the singing and got ready to preach and thought I don’t know anything about water skiing I will preach on sex. After church a deacon walked by the house and told the preachers wife it sure was a good sermon. And the preachers wife said am really surprised he only tried it twice and fell off both times.
A preacher is buying a parrot.
“Are you sure it doesn’t scream, yell, or swear?” asked the preacher.
“Oh absolutely. It’s a religious parrot”, the storekeeper assures him.
“Do you see those strings on his legs? When you pull the right one, he recites the lord’s prayer, and when you pull on the left he recites the 23rd Psalm”.
“Wonderful!” says the preacher, “but what happens if you pull both strings?”
“I fall off my perch, you stupid fool!” screeched the parrot.
A farmer purchased an old, run-down, abandoned farm with plans to turn it into a thriving enterprise. The fields were grown over with weeds, the farmhouse was falling apart, and the fences were broken down. During his first day of work, the town preacher stops by to bless the man’s work, saying, “May you and God work together to make this the farm of your dreams!”
A few months later, the preacher stops by again to call on the farmer. Lo and behold, it’s a completely different place. The farm house is completely rebuilt and in excellent condition, there is plenty of cattle and other livestock happily munching on feed in well-fenced pens, and the fields are filled with crops planted in neat rows. “Amazing!” the preacher says. “Look what God and you have accomplished together!”
“Yes, Reverend,” says the farmer, “but remember what the farm was like when God was working it alone!”
An old preacher was dying. He sent a message for his IRS agent and his Lawyer (both church members), to come to his home. When they arrived, they were ushered up to his bedroom. As they entered the room, the preacher held out his hands and motioned for them to sit on each side of the bed. The preacher grasped their hands, sighed contentedly, smiled and stared at the ceiling. For a time, no one said anything. Both the IRS agent and Lawyer were touched and flattered that the old preacher would ask them to be with him during his final moment.
They were also puzzled because the preacher had never given any indication that he particularly liked either one of them.
Finally, the Lawyer asked, “Preacher, why did you ask the two of us to come?”
The old preacher mustered up some strength, then said weakly, “Jesus died between two thieves, and that’s how I want to go, too”.
After years of his wife’s pleading, this rich good ole boy finally goes with her to her little local Church on Sunday morning. He was so moved by the preacher’s sermon that on the way out he stopped to shake his hand.
He said, “Reverend, that was the best damn sermon I ever did hear!”
The Preacher replied, “Oh!! Why, thank you sir, but please, I’d appreciate it if you didn’t use profanity in the Lord’s house.”
The man said, “I’m sorry Reverend, but I can’t help myself, it was a damn good sermon!”
The Reverend said, “Sir, PLEASE, I cannot have you behaving this way in Church!”
The man said, “Okay Reverend, but I just wanted you to know that I thought it was so damn good, I put $5000. in that there collection plate.”
And the Reverend said, “NO SHIT?”
