Sea of Galilee
A vicar planning an Easter pilgrimage to the Holy Land was shaken when he found it would cost him £50 an hour to rent a boat on the Sea of Galilee.
He protested to the travel agent that the cost was ridiculous. “That might be true,” replied the travel agent, “but you have to take into account that the Sea of Galilee is water on which our Lord Himself walked.”
“Well,” said the vicar, “at £50 an hour for a boat, I am not surprised!”
Palm Sunday visit
It was Palm Sunday, but because of a sore throat, five-year-old Bobby was kept home from church with his grannie. When the family returned home, they were carrying several palm fronds and Bobby asked them what they were for. “People held them over Jesus’ head as He walked by,” his father explained.
Bobby was aghast. “I don’t believe it! The one Sunday I don’t go, and He shows up!”
When my husband was six years old, he thought the creed included the line: “He suffered under a bunch of violets.” It took him years before he realised that he should have been saying: “under Pontius Pilate.”
A little boy had spent all afternoon playing outdoors, and accidentally left his jacket at the end of the garden. When his mother realised this a couple of hours later, she told him to go back and get it. But by now the garden was dark, and so the little boy hesitated. “Don’t be frightened,” she said. “The Lord is out there too.”
That gave the little boy an idea. He opened the back door and called softly: ‘Lord, please could you pass me my jacket?”
