How many Christians does it take to change a light bulb?By Marc • Nov 19th, 2005 • Category: In My Mail, the Weirdo
I got this in my email today….
Charismatic: Only one. Hands already in the air.
Pentecostal: Ten. One to change the bulb, and nine to pray
against spirit of darkness.
Presbyterians: None. Lights will go on and off at
Roman Catholic: None. Candles only.
Baptists: At least 15. One to change the light bulb, and
three committees to approve the change and decide who brings
the potato salad and fried chicken.
Episcopalians: Three. One to call the electrician, one to
mix the drinks, and one to talk about how much better the
old one was.
Mormons: Five. One man to change the bulb, and four wives to
tell him how to do it.
Unitarians: We choose not to make a statement either in
favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if
in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for
you, that is fine. You are invited to write a poem or
compose a modern dance about your light bulb for the next
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.
Methodists: Undetermined. Whether your light is bright,
dull, or completely out, you are loved. You can be a light
bulb, turnip bulb, or tulip bulb. Church-wide lighting
service is planned for Sunday. Bring bulb of your choice and
a covered dish.
Nazarene: Six. One woman to replace the bulb while five men
review church lighting policy.
Lutherans: None. Lutherans don’t believe in change.
Amish: What’s a light bulb?
I’m cryin’ here. Do ya hear me? Cryin’!
