The Jesus clock and insomnia

We've had a recent influx of new people at Linden so much so that Sunday morning meetings are beginning to present a Health & Safety hazard. I suggested to Chris, my boss, that we could solve the problem by replacing the boring clock in the hall with the Jesus clock from my office. My theory is that only people who really belong in Linden would stay then.

Chris vetoed the idea just because. 

However he did make a valid point. Some would love the clock while laughing heartily but others might love the clock because of its religious symbolism. The first group is welcome; people in the the second group might soon find themselves struggling with Linden's less-than-religious attitude.

I was reading an article in a magazine all about home remedies for various ailments. If you have trouble sleeping try applying pressure to the pad at the base of your big toe. Apparently, according to reflexologists, this clears the head thus enabling you to sleep well. And while you're massaging your big toe chew on some lettuce, which, as every bunny knows, is highly soporific.

I so love congregations with "less-than-religious attitude." It's the only theologically valid way to go!

You seem to be a true congregation , one that values humour and allows for people's foibles . Hardly surprising that you're becoming popular at a time when friends are the new family .
