Stuff About Things

Robert F. Turner

The Fine Art Of Punnery

or, A Letter From A Plain Talk Reader.

"The advent of cooler weather apparently makes even an "anti" church building preferable to the elements for many of these field mice, so I have wished for your "plunker" pistol a couple of times. I had to drop-kick one against the wall last week.

I find it hard to show them mercy, especially since I believe their presence here is not out of conviction! It's hard to respect a hypocrite, even among field mice. We've already discovered them "breaking bread" in the middle of the week. With the kind of preaching they get here, it's hard to figure out why they hang around.

I really believe they're just a bunch of tail-bearers anyway! Not much hope for strife to cease while they're around, huh? They already have the reputation of calling on more houses in town than the Jehovah Witnesses; then comes time for assemblies and they won't show their face. Their feet are swift in running to mischief.

Well, maybe some day they'll show up for Ladies Bible Class and the least will truly become the greatest, and they will bring upon themselves swift destruction...... " To which I can but add -------------- SELAH! --------------------------------

One man writes that church problems are but the troubled world reflected in the lives of people. I beg to differ. I think we are a troubled people, falling in line with a world that is now and always troubled.

Cares, anxieties, fears for tomorrow! Does God really care about us?? Then I heard a flutter at my window, and a very small sparrow alighted. He cocked his head - right -- left. He preened his feathers; and with a saucy toss of the tail, launched himself boldly into the great, wide heavens.

"Wait, Sparrow"' I cried. "What of tomorrow?" I think he did not hear me.

"Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.--- Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows."

Have You Thought About Sparrows--
