‘No, Sorry, I Can’t Come to Your Wedding’…

If Pastors used the same excuses as Church members do when they ‘can’t make it to worship’ here’s what they’d say when they were asked to do weddings or funerals:

  • I have company coming over.
  • We got a new puppy.
  • I’m going to a fireworks show.
  • I’ll be at the lake.
  • We’re on vacation for the Summer.
  • The kid isn’t feeling well so we’re all staying home to take care of him.
  • I just have so much to do.
  • I need some alone time.
  • I did a funeral last year.  Isn’t once a year enough?
  • The alarm didn’t go off.
  • It was raining too hard.
  • It was too hot.
  • It was too cold.
  • It was snowing.
  • I forgot all about it!
  • I didn’t like what you said last week.
  • All that stuff is extra-curricular activity.
  • There was a game on that I just had to watch.

But, of course, Pastors aren’t as willing to lie so they will do what’s best instead of what they want.

    Lots of Jewish jokes about this issue:

    Our rabbi’s favorite:

    A synagogue was swarming with mice and they didn’t know what to do. They tried everything, poison, traps, exterminators, nothing worked.

    Finally, the rabbi had a solution:

    He gathered up all the mice. He had a tiny kippah and little tallis made for each one of them. He taught them all the alef-bet, gave each of them a torah portion to learn, called each one to the torah to read it, and gave them each a bar/bat mitzvah celebration.

    Lo and behold, he never saw them again.
