Follow up: Musings on evangelism

Since I seem to be in the mood to post random links, here's another:


It's the website of a pressure group designed to help push the BCP in worship.

Atheism vs. Religion

This article is doing the rounds at the moment, so I thought I'd talk about it too.


Rather unfortunately there's little to talk about. I agree wholeheartedly.

The lovely joke

Perhaps I should have added a category for the Church of England, where I'm sure the church wardens would leave the broken bulb in place for 6 months before a parishioner decided to change it themselves.

Though that's probably just where I come from.

How many Christians does it take to change a light bulb?

Charismatic : Only 1

Hands are already in the air.

Pentecostal : 10

One to change the bulb, and nine to pray against the spirit of darkness.

Presbyterians : None

Lights will go on and off at predestined times.

Roman Catholic : None

Candles only.

Baptists : At least 15

One to change the light bulb, and three committees to approve the change and decide who brings the potato salad and fried chicken

Episcopalians : 3

One to call the electrician, one to mix the drinks and one to talk about how much better the old one was.

Mormons : 7

One man to change the bulb, and six wives to tell him how to do it.

Unitarians : We choose not to make a statement either in favour of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, then you are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your light bulb for the next Sunday service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, fluorescent, 3-way, long-life and tinted, all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence.

Methodists : Undetermined

Whether your light is bright, dull, or completely out, you are loved. You can be a light bulb, turnip bulb, or tulip bulb. Bring a bulb of your choice to the Sunday lighting service and a covered dish to pass.

Nazarene : 6

One woman to replace the bulb while five men review church lighting policy.

Lutherans : None

Lutherans don't believe in change.

Amish : What's a light bulb?
