From the Church Mouse
This might be a good time for some levity. Levity can mean light-heartedness, carefreeness, light-mindedness, as well as treating a serious matter with humor. The following is offered to give you a chuckle.
A thing that someone says to cause amusement or laughter, especially a story with a funny punchline.
It was one day in the fall of the year at Christ First United Methodist Church. The Rev. was putting on his robe and getting ready for the service.
A few minutes before the services started, the townspeople were sitting in their pews and talking.
Suddenly, Satan appeared at the front of the church. Everyone started screaming and running for the entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away from evil incarnate.
Soon everyone had exited the church except for one elderly gentleman who sat calmly in his pew without moving, seeming oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate enemy was in his presence.
So, Satan walked up to the old man and said, "Don't you know who I am?"
The man replied, "Yep, sure do."
"Aren't you afraid of me?" Satan asked. "
“Nope, sure ain't," said the man.
"Don't you realize I can kill you with a word?" asked Satan. "
“Don't doubt it for a minute," returned the old man, in an even tone.
"Did you know that I could cause you profound, horrifying, physical AGONY... for all eternity?" persisted Satan. "
“Yep," was the calm reply.
“"And you're still not afraid?" asked Satan.
More than a little perturbed, Satan asked, "Well, why aren't you afraid of me?"
The man calmly replied, "Been married to your sister for the last 48 years”!
