It’s not uncommon for a leader of a church to assign some sort of “homework” to their congregation. Usually, it is to endeavor to improve in some way over the coming week or go out of your way to help someone.
The pastor in the joke below gave his congregation an assignment they won’t soon forget!
Pastor Assigns Homework Due the Next Sunday… His Entire Congregation FAILS!
“In preparation for my sermon next week, I want you all to read Mark chapter 17. You are dismissed.” So next week everybody comes back to church. After singing a few hymns, the pastor comes to the pulpit.
“How many read Mark chapter 17 like I said last week?” Everyone raised their hand. The pastor says “and it’s a great chapter, amen??” There are shouts of “amen!” from the congregation. Then the pastor smirks.
“Well, Mark only has 16 chapters. I will now begin my sermon on the terrible sin of lying.”
Oops! That might be the first time an entire church was caught lying!
