Ecumenical GatheringDuring an Ecumenical Gathering someone rushed in and shouted, "The building is on fire!" Immediately...
The METHODISTS gathered in the corner and prayed,
The BAPTISTS cried, "Where is the water?"
The QUAKERS quietly praised God for the blessing that fire brings,
The LUTHERANS posted a notice on the door declaring the fire was evil,
The ROMAN CATHOLICS passed a collection plate,
The EPISCOPALIANS formed a procession and marched out,
The CONGREGATIONALISTS shouted, "Every man for himself...."
The FUNDAMENTALISTS shouted. "It's the vengeance of God!"
The JEWS posted symbols on the door hoping that the fire would pass,
The JEHOVAH's WITNESSES passed out literature about the fire,
The MORMONS ran late-night TV commercials for free videos of the fire,
The CHRISTIAN SCIENTISTS agreed among themselves that there was not a fire,
The SCIENTOLOGISTS charged admission to the fire, and
The PRESBYTERIANS appointed a chairperson who was to appoint a committee to look into the matter and make a written report to the voting assembly.
