An elderly woman walked into the local country church. The friendly usher greeted her at the door and helped her up the flight of steps. “Where would you like to sit?” he asked politely.
“The front row please,” she answered.
“You really don't want to do that,” the usher said. “The pastor is really boring.”
“Do you happen to know who I am?” the woman inquired.
“No,” he said.
“I'm the pastor's mother,” she replied indignantly.
“Do you know who I am?” he asked.
“No.” she said.
“Good,” he answered.

I asked the children during story time at church if any of them knew what a saint was.
They were silent.
“Do you know anything at all about saints?” I asked again.
One lad tentatively raised his hand.
“Yes, Clayton?” I asked.
“Well,” he offered, “they go marching in.”
