The young priest

there was an elderly priest speaking to a younger priest and he said, "You had a good idea to replace the first four pews with plush bucket theater seats, it worked like a charm. The front of the church always fills first now."

The young priest nodded, and the old priest continued, "And you told me adding a little more beat to the music would bring back young people, so I supported you when you brought in that 'Rock 'n Roll Gospel Choir'. Now our services are constantly packed to the balcony."

"Thank you Father," answered the young priest. "I am pleased that you are open to the New ideas for Youth."

"All of these ideas have been well and good," said the elderly priest, "but I'm afraid you've gone to far with the Drive-thru-Confessional."

"But Father," protested the young priest, "my confessions and the donations have nearly doubled since I began that!"

"Yes," replied the elderly priest, "and I appreciate that... But the flashing neon sign, 'Toot 'n Tell or Go to Hell' cannot stay on the church!"
