Edna: Well some of the folks here are retired, just like you Pastor Clamwell.
Henry: You saying that I am retired?
Edna: Well yes you are Pastor Clamwell, you’ve been retired going on seven years now, remember?
Henry: Guess that explains why my keys didn’t work on the church doors yesterday.
Edna: Isn’t it wonderful, a roomful of Baptists?
Henry: Let’s have some fun with them, OK?
Edna: Some fun?
Henry: Yeh, you start singin’ and I’ll tell them to go grab their partner for the next dance.
Edna: Oh Pastor!
Henry: Pastor and his wife in North Dakota got kicked outta the church last winter.
Edna: Oh no! . . . What did they do to get kicked out of the church?
Henry: Pastor and his wife walked into the church, their boots was covered with snow, so they stomped their feet to get rid of the snow, folks in church thought they was dancin’.
