A church was preparing for Christmas services. The pastor decided he wanted a banner made for the entryway and had a parishioner call the banner company.
The parishioner told the man on the phone the message he wanted and the dimensions needed for the entryway.
The sign came back a few days later: . . “Unto Mary Jesus was born, six feet long and two feet wide.”
A lot of people want to serve God, but only in an advisory capacity.
