    YOU MIGHT BE A PASTOR IF...
    ~ Everybody stops talking when you enter the room.
    ~You've ever lied at a funeral.
    ~ You always read the obituaries.
    ~ You've ever suffered anxiety attack while playing Bible Trivia Pursuit.
    ~ You wonder why people who have some time to kill want to spend it with you.
    ~ You get your second wind when you say "And in conclusion"
    ~ The ideas you bounce off board members really do.
    ~ Your car tires are balding faster than your head.
    ~ You wish someone would steal some of your sheep.
    ~ You've seen more religion at a pool hall than you've seen at a Church cricket match.
    ~ Your Bible has more side notes than printed text.
    ~ "Annual Church Meeting" and "Armageddon" are one and the same to you.
    ~ You jiggle all the toilet handles before you leave the church
    building.
    ~ You've waded in a creek wearing a necktie.
    ~ You've ever dreamed you were preaching only to waken and discover that you were.
    ~ You'd rather negotiate with terrorists than the church organist.
    ~ You see a picnic as no picnic.
    ~ You've ever wanted to fire the church and form a congregation search committee.
    ~ You've been tempted to take up an offering at a family reunion.
    ~ You've ever wanted to give the sound man some feedback of your own.
    ~ You've ever wanted to lay hands on a deacon, and you didn't mean praying for him.
    ~ You often feel like you are herding cats instead of shepherding sheep.
    ~ Your sermons have a happy ending...everyone's happy when it ends.
    ~ You've never preached on TV, because your wife made you get down before you broke something.
    ~ You feel that it is your job to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.

    ...You run rabbit trails when going over the shopping list. (Maybe not that, but as for just general talking, guilty :)

    ...You think of your youth and the TV characters you were really into - and wonder if they were saved. (Yep! That's what fan fiction is for, to get them saved, right? :type:

    ...You watch the news, and the first thing you think about any news item involving people is, "I hope they're saved." (Actually, all Christians should think that - but sadly, many feel it's the pastor'[s job to reach people. And, as I've drawn closer to God, I find myself thikning that more and more.)

    ~If in a conversation with another person that person blurts a four letter word and covering their mouth says, "I'm sorry".

    --- you only work one day a week. (Don't you love that statement!!!)
    --- You are the one who says 'grace' at every picnic you attend
    --- you go to the grocery store, and don't get home for 3 hours later, because everyone wants to talk to you
    --- you often forget that others have lives that doesn't have to do with church
    --- You are expected to straighten up a 18 yr old because their parents didn't want to force their kids to go to church.

    "~ You've never preached on TV, because your wife made you get down before you broke something. "

    This one doens't make sense, unless it's a groaner about sitting or standing on the TV. Is that it?

    I'm pretty sure; I know that's how I saw it. I love those kinds of jokes.

    ... when someone tells you they'll be in church THIS Sunday, you act like you believe them, but you know it's a lie.

    ... you are cynical and hopeful at the same time.
