Is the church’s message clear to everyone or just the people who already know it?

Reverend Ole and Pastor Sven

Reverend Ole was the pastor of the local Norwegian Lutheran Church, and Pastor Sven was the minister of the Swedish Covenant Church across the road. I saw them yesterday standing by the road, pounding a sign into the ground, that reads:

‘Da End iss Near!
Turn Yourself Aroundt Now!
Before It’s Too Late!’

As a car sped past them, the driver leaned out his window and yelled, ‘Leave us alone, you religious nuts!’
From the curve we heard screeching tires and a big splash…

Rev. Ole turns to Pastor Sven and asks, ‘Do ya tink maybe da sign should yust say ‘Bridge Out’?

Thanks to Momma Donna and Pastor Lee for this little forward on my email.

    Instead of Momma Donna, could we just shorten her name and call her MaDonna?

    I don’t know…just who was it that danced the night before the bar burned down? Hmm?


  7. Momma Donna can throw down, no doubt. I’m struggling with the pointy undergarments.

    On another note………

    Is this Momma Donna’s first comment?

    My original comment was meant to be a compliment. But now I find out she goes out dancin’ and “burning down the house” (literally) I’m not sure if she is deserving of the title any more!

    Maybe it should be “HotMammaDonna. “


  9. “Now I found out”??!!!!! You were the one she was dancing with!!!!


  10. LOL—that’s all I’ve got to say…LOL!!
