In order to take care of all the excuses for not attending church, the following information was placed in the local newspaper:

1.Beds will be placed in fellowship hall for those who say, 'Sunday is my only day to rest.'
 

2. Eye drops will be available for those with tired eyes from watching TV too late on Saturday night.

 

3. Steel helmets will be provided for those who say, 'The roof would cave in if I ever went to church.'
 

4. Blankets will be furnished for those who think that church is too cold and air-conditioning for those who say that it is too hot.

 

5. We will reserve the front pews for those who like the pastor's sermons and the back pews with earplugs for those who dislike his sermons.

 

6. Scorecards will be available for those who list the hypocrites present.

 

7. TV dinners will be available for those who can't go to church and cook the noon meal for the family.

 

8. We will have a selection of trees and shrubs for those who like to see God in nature.
