My dear friend, Fran, of Sacred Ordinary sent along this excellent groooaaannn that a friend shared with her. I just love how y'all are so kind as to pass these on to me. God knows I love collecting groaners and never cease to be delighted and amazed when they appear in my email. I am sure y'all are gonna loooooooooooooove this one!
We were celebrating the one hundredth anniversary of our church and several former pastors and the bishop were in attendance. In the middle of the liturgy, our minister had the children gather at the altar for a talk about the importance of the day. He began by asking them, "Does anyone know what the bishop does?" There was silence. Finally, one little boy answered gravely:
"He's the one you can move diagonally."
