Church Shopping

N has a really great sense of humor, and it’s a shame nobody except me gets to hear his jokes.

Today we heard that a family we know is switching to another church denomination in order to save on schooling costs. There’s a tuition rebate for people who belong to the school’s parish.

“I wonder how much they’ll end up saving,” I say.

“Thirty pieces of silver, of course,” N replies.


One thought on “Church Shopping

  1. I am reminded of C. S. Lewis’ Screwtape who advises his nephew, Wormwood, that if he cannot keep his “patient” out of church, he should at least have him shop around. The goal being to turn the patient into a critic and keep his mind off of the fact that he is a sinner in need of salvation. He needs the church more than the church needs him.
