Reminder to Keep the Heat In! With the onset of cold weather, the church building’s heat is on. In order to keep our boiler system from breaking down, we cannot prop outside doors open during the winter months.
ON THE LIGHTER SIDE…
An elementary teacher asked her students, “How do you spell crocodile?” One of her students raised his hand. “Yes, Jerry?” He stood up and spelled it out, “K-R-A-W-K-U-D-I-A-L.” “No, Jerry, that’s not correct.” Jerry replied, “But Ms. Jensen, you asked, ‘How do you spell crocodile?’ And that’s how I spell it!”
