FOOD FOR THOUGHT?
Three pastors from neighboring parishes
were having lunch at a diner. The first said,
“You know, since the summer started I’ve
been having a lot of trouble with bats in the
loft and attic of my church. I’ve tried everything—noise, spray, cats—nothing seems
to scare them away.”
The second pastor replied, “Me too. I’ve
got hundreds of those things living in my
bell tower and in the narthex attic. I had the
whole place fumigated, but they still won’t
go away.”
The third said, “I had that problem a while
ago. So I baptized all the bats and haven’t
seen one back since!”
