A Story of Four Worms

A minister carefully selected four worms, night-crawlers to be exact, for a visual demonstration to add emphasis to his Sunday sermon. For this demonstration, he watered his lawn in the evening, then when night time approached, visited his back yard with flashlight in hand. 

The Four Worms were Placed into Four Separate Jars

The FIRST WORM was put into a container of alcohol.

The SECOND WORM was put into a container of cigarette smoke.

The THIRD WORM was put into a container of chocolate.

The FOURTH WORM was put into a container of good clean soil.

What Happened to the Four Worms?

At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the following results:

The FIRST WORM in the jar with alcohol - was DEAD.

The SECOND WORM in the jar with cigarette smoke - was DEAD.

The THIRD WORM in the jar with chocolate - was DEAD.

The FOURTH WORM in the jar of good clean soil - was ALIVE!

So the Minister Asked the Congregation:

What can you learn from this demonstration?

From the back of the church, came the response:

"As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won't have worms!"

That pretty much ended the service . . .

Sitting in Church

An elderly couple is sitting in church one morning, listening to the sermon, when the wife whispers to her husband, "I just let out a silent fart, what should I do?"

Her husband leaned over to her and whispers back to her, "Well, the first thing you should do when you get home is put a new battery in your hearing aid!"

Your Dad is the Preacher

You know it's not going to me your best moment, when you Dad uses you as a sermon illustration, and the whole congregation turns around to look at you.

Life is a Miracle

We live on a blue planet that circles around a ball of fire next to a moon that moves the sea, and you don't believe in miracles?
