Notes & Transcripts

How many Christians does it take to change a light bulb?

Charismatic:               Only one. Hands already in the air.

Pentecostal:               Ten. One to change the bulb, and nine to pray against the spirit of  darkness.

 Presbyterian:             None. Lights will go on and off at predestined times.

 Catholics:                  None. Candles only.

 Baptist:                      At least 15. One to change the light bulb, and three committees to  approve the change and decide who brings the potato salad.

Episcopalian:             Three. One to call the electrician, one to mix the drinks, and one to talk about how much better the old bulb was.

Mormon: Five.          One man to change the bulb and four wives to tell him how to do it.

Methodist:                  Undetermined. Whether your light is bright, dull or completely burned out, you are loved. You can be a light bulb, turnip bulb, or tulip bulb.

Church-wide               l lighting service is planned for Sunday. Bring the bulb of your choice and a covered dish.

Nazarene:                    Six. One woman to replace the bulb while five men review the church lighting policy.

Lutheran:                    None. Lutherans don't believe in change.

Church of Christ:        They do not use light bulbs because there is no evidence of their use in the New Testament.

Unitarian:                   We choose not to make a statement either in favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, that is fine. You are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your bulb for next Sunday's service, during which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, fluorescent, three-way, long-life, and tinted, all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence.

Amish:                                    What's a light bulb?
