Romans 11:33-36

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor? Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

Recently, a fellow pastor and I were talking about a phone call he had received. Apparently the caller was new to the area and was looking for a church to attend. Understandably, she had many questions to ask, but the sad thing was that none of them had to do with anything substantive. They dealt exclusively with size, style, dress, and activities—not one question concerning faith and practice. Nothing was asked about evangelism, discipleship or the preaching and teaching of God’s Word. Soon after that conversation, I read this series of facetious World Magazine articles called The Church of You, The Church of You: Weddings, and Funerals. They go hand-in-hand with this “commercial” advertising a new kind of praise and worship CD.

Humor is funniest when it contains an element of truth.
