Light of the World.

As I am preparing for the real estate investor seminar set for this weekend, I haven't posted for a little while. I thought I would give you New Testament scholar Dr. Ben Witherington III's light-bulb jokes, in case you missed them from his excellent site,

"How many Presbyterians does it take to change alight bulb? None. God has pre-ordained when the lights will be on andwhen they will be off.

"How many Catholics does it take to change alight bulb? None. They always use candles.

"How many Episcopalians does it take to change a light bulb?? Ten. One to actually change the bulb, and nine to sayhow much better they liked the old one.

"How many Methodists does it take to change a light bulb?? 'We choose not to make a statement either in favor of or against the need for a lightbulb. However, if in your own journey, you have found that a light bulbworks for you, that is fine. You are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your personal relationship to your light bulb andpresent it next month at our annual light bulb Sunday service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, fluorescent, three-way, long-life and tinted, all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence through Jesus Christ.'

"How many Baptists does it take to change a light bulb???? CHANGE ????????????"
