Repent and be saved!!

If you have already repented, please disregard this notice.

If not, send $49.95 and a bottle of Jim Beam to Father Piccolo's ministry and we'll get you started on the way to true enlightenment. 

But wait, there's MORE! If you take advantage of this special one-time offer, we'll throw in free of charge, Eternal Salvation!

Act now! Operators are standing by!

For years I have wondered about televangelists and their followings and wondered. Over the years they seem to have popped up and a number of them have done an outstanding job of keeping the tabloids in business.

Seems pretty profitable to me.

When you look at them there are few that really seem to be serving the deity. Most of them seem to be serving up a pile of hoople disguised as religion that they sell the gullible.

Personally, I can say that Father Piccolo hasn't been inside a church in decades and yet has had more religious experiences at sea than I can count.

I suppose maybe you don't have to have a church to be religious.
I also figure that if there are a few bucks in it and I can get someone to sponser me I would set up a televangical show and get out there and rant and rave.

The difference between me and most of the other televangelists is that I would make most of the show for entertainmant only and be up front about it.

I'd also end with a more serious note and try and help the poor guy that's out there busting his butt every day but never seems to get anywhere but further into debt and depression.

Keep plugging. It's worth it.

What's more, YOU are worth it.

So here's today's sermon.

Just take a few minutes out today and do something for someone else.

Visit an older relative, help a neighbor out with something, whatever.

Just spend a few minutes doing something for someone else and see if it doesn't make you day go a little better.

Sunday sneaked up on me and I have to whip up a sermon

Good Morning!

Glad you are here to enjoy another day no matter what your faith. Even if you don't have one.

SOme of you have woken up not feeling too good and likely you had a little too much fun last night and you're paying for it. I had many Sunday mornings like that in my youth and early middle age so you ain't the Lone Ranger.

Anyway, no matter how you feel now, you'll feel even better if you get out and enjoy the day.

Happy Sunday morning!
