The following is a confidential report on several candidates being considered for a pastorate:
ADAM: Good man but problems with his wife.
NOAH: Former pastorate of 120 years with not even one convert. Prone to unrealistic building projects.
JOSEPH: A big thinker, but a braggart, believes in dream-interpreting, and has a prison record.
MOSES: A modest and meek man, but poor communicator, even stuttering at times. Sometimes blows his stack and acts rashly. Some say he left an earlier church over a murder charge.
DAVID: He has an unacceptable moral character.
SOLOMON: Great preacher but our parsonage would never hold all those wives.
ELIJAH: Prone to depression. Collapses under pressure.
HOSEA: A tender and loving pastor but our people could never handle his wife's occupation.
DEBORAH: Strong leader and seems to be anointed, but she is female.
JEREMIAH: Emotionally unstable, alarmist, negative, always lamenting things, reported to have taken a long trip to bury his underwear on the bank of a foreign river.
ISAIAH: On the fringe? Claims to have seen angels in church. Has trouble with his language.
JONAH: Refused God's call into ministry until he was forced to obey by getting swallowed up by a great fish. He told us the fish later spit him out on the shore near here. We hung up.
AMOS: Too backward and unpolished. With some seminary training he might have promise, but has a hang-up against wealthy people - might fit in better in a poor congregation.
JOHN: Says he is a Baptist, but definitely doesn't dress like one. Has slept in the outdoors for months on end, has a weird diet, and provokes denominational leaders.
PETER: Too blue collar. Has a bad temper - even has been known to curse. Had a big run-in with Paul in Antioch. Aggressive, but a loose cannon.
PAUL: Powerful CEO type leader and fascinating preacher. However, short on tact, unforgiving with younger ministers, harsh and has been known to preach all night.
JAMES & JOHN: Package deal preacher and associate seemed good at first, but found out they have an ego problem regarding other fellow workers and seating positions. Threatened an entire town after an insult. Also known to try to discourage workers who didn't follow along with them.
TIMOTHY: Too young!
METHUSELAH: Too old . . . WAY too old!
JESUS: Has had popular times, but once his church grew to 5,000 he managed to offend them all, and then this church dwindled down to twelve people. Seldom stays in one place very long. And, of course, he's single.
JUDAS: His references are solid. A steady plodder. Conservative. Good connections. Knows how to handle money. We're inviting him to preach this Sunday. Possibilities here.

Many of you are aware of the homegoing of Carol A. Carol passed away yesterday afternoon at home, surrounded by family as was her desire. We are saddened by the loss of her beautiful presence here on earth, but also rejoicing as the health problems she endured for so long are gone and she is at peace in the loving arms of our Heavenly Father.

Our youth will be ministering at a local assisted living facility tomorrow. They will be visiting the residents and offering cheer and encouragement to participate in a craft. Youth will leave the church at 3:30 PM and return in time for mid week service.
What a blessing for our young people to reach out and extend God's love!

The true purpose of the day: Sharing the Gospel message of salvation! This man accepted the Lord and insisted on following up with baptism. The leaders readily rose to the challenge and a offered the opportunity for him to follow the leading of the Lord – right then, right there!
