I think they're making fun of Presbyterians ;)

I giggled long and hard over this article. Lark News has some really hilarious articles, if you've never checked it out. I could link to any number of hilarious articles on the site, but instead I'll just suggest you take a few moments in your free time to read a few.

I love Lark News!

Hi Susan,

I've been reading your blog for a while now, and want to let you know how much I enjoy and am blessed by it. (And you keep challenging me to leave my fluff reading behind and get back to the good stuff!) We seem to share much in common theologically, too.

Thanks for sharing Lark News -- I can't believe I've never come across it before. My husband has been an assistant pastor and preacher - and so that particular article just had me in stitches. What a good laugh!

Enjoy Wednesday and many blessings!

Hi, Kim,

Welcome to my blog :). Thank you for the encouragement, and I do hope you continue to come back!

A pastor at my church mentioned Lark News a few weeks ago, and it really is amusing :).

Yeah, I've enjoyed LarkNews for quote a while - it gets updated at the start of each month, and I usually read each new issue within 48 hours. :)

This post is a good cautionary tale. I avoid Greek and Hebrew words while preaching, though there might indeed be a place for the. But one has to think sniper rifle, not machine gun.

But it made me think, what Hebrew words would the average Christian know. yom?chesed? shalom? Not that people who read this blog are likely to be average Christians. ;)

There are only two Hebrew words I've come across that are the same in English - saq and saphir.

That article brought back some memories of my reformed upbrining in a CRC church. : )

Yep, that was pretty funny. It is a good reminder that knowledge, for a pastor, is *always* to be laid at the feet of Christ, and in service to the people, not to make himself into a guru, or to establish some kind of cult following. I have to remind myself of this constantly.

I think it is a good reminder for non-pastors as well - says the girl who has learned many lessons (and many yet to learn) about misusing knowledge.
