    Default A Priest, a Preacher and a Rabbi ....

    A Catholic Priest, a Baptist Preacher and a Rabbi all served as Chaplains to the students of a northern university. They would get together two or three times a week for coffee and to talk shop.

    One day, someone made the comment that preaching to people isn't
    really all that hard. A real challenge would be to preach to a bear.
    One thing led to another, and they decided to do an experiment. They
    would all go out into the woods, find a bear, preach to it, and attempt to
    convert it to their religion.

    Seven days later, they all came together to discuss their experiences.
    Father Flannery, who had his arm in a sling, was on crutches, and had
    various bandages on his body and limbs, went first.
    'Well,' he said, 'I went into the woods to find me a bear. And when I
    found him, I began to read to him from the Catechism.

    Well, that bear wanted nothing to do with me and began to slap me
    around. So I quickly grabbed my holy water, sprinkled him and, Holy Mary
    Mother of God, he became as gentle as a lamb. The Bishop is coming out
    next week to give him first communion and confirmation.'

    Reverend Billy Bob spoke next. He was in a wheelchair, had one arm and
    both legs in casts, and had an IV drip.

    In his best fire-and-brimstone oratory, he exclaimed, 'WELL, brothers, you
    KNOW that we Baptists don't sprinkle! I went out and I FOUND me a bear.
    And then I began to read to my bear from God's HOLY WORD! But that
    bear wanted nothing to do with me.

    So I took HOLD of him and we began to wrestle. We wrestled down one hill, UP another and DOWN another until we came to a creek. So I quickly DUNKED him and BAPTIZED his hairy soul. And just like you said, he became as gentle as a lamb. We spent the rest of the day praising Jesus..Hallelujah!

    The Priest and the Reverend both looked down at the Rabbi, who was lying in
    a hospital bed. He was in a body cast and traction with IVs and monitors
    running in and out of him. He was in really bad shape. The Rabbi looked up and said: "Looking back on it, ....circumcision may not
    have been the best way to start."

    Circumcision, never a good starting point...
    God so loved the world He gave his only Son...
    ...Believe in Him and have everlasting life.
    John 3:16
