Light as a Feather

Yesterday's post was pretty heavy, especially for someone returning from vacation!! So just to lighten things up a bit, take a gander at these little snafus.

Poor little old ladies who type the church bulletin - they're so naive... or are they?! The below statements were found in church bulletins or announced from the pulpit. And boy I would've LOVED to have been there for it!
