Thursday Thirteen (7th)

Children in Church

1. A little boy was attending his first wedding.

2. After the service, his cousin asked him, "How many women can a man marry?"

3. "Sixteen," the boy responded.

4. His cousin was amazed that he had an answer so quickly. "How do you know that?"

5."Easy," the little boy said. "All you have to do is add it up, like the Bishop said: 4 better, 4 worse, 4 richer, 4 poorer."

6. After a church service on Sunday morning, a young boy suddenly announced to his mother, "Mom, I've decided to become a minister when I grow up."

7. "That's okay with us, but what made you decide that?"

8. "Well," said the little boy, "I have to go to church on Sunday anyway, and I figure it will be more fun to stand up and yell, than to sit and listen."

9. A 6-year-old was overheard reciting the Lord's Prayer at a church service: "And forgive us our trash passes, as we forgive those who passed trash against us."

10. A boy was watching his father, a pastor, write a sermon.

11. “How do you know what to say?" he asked.

12. "Why, God tells me."

13. "Oh, then why do you keep crossing things out?"
