Innovation

A bishop was speaking to a young parish priest: "It was a good idea to replace the first four rows of pews with plush bucket theater seats. It worked like a charm. The front of the church always fills first now."

The young priest nodded and the bishop continued, "And you told me a little more beat to the music would bring young people back to the church, so I supported you when you brought in that rock 'n' roll gospel choir. You're packed to the balcony!"

"Thank you, Father," answered the young priest. "I am grateful that you're open to new ideas."

"However," said the bishop, "I'm afraid you've gone too far with the drive-thru confessional."

"But, Father," protested the young priest, "my confessions and the donations have nearly doubled since that began!"

"I know, son, but that flashing neon sign, Toot 'n' Tell or Go To Hell, just can not stay on the roof of the church."
