A Companion of Jesus

Laughter – Good for the Soul.

If your Christianity is marked by a long face that is absent of joy…then this blog may help reunite you with the tender, terrifying, playful, wonderful God you’ve replaced with religious duties and rigid rule keeping. Come and laugh with me….may the joy of the Lord be your strength!!

An Irish Priest decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday homily.

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 syrup.
The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil.

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

The first worm in alcohol – Dead.
The second worm in cigarette smoke – Dead
The third worm in chocolate syrup – Dead 
The fourth worm in good clean soil – Alive! 

So the priest asked the congregation – “What did you learn from this demonstration?”

Michael was sitting in the back of the church, quickly raised his hand and said,

“As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won’t have worms!”
