IjJL Valley News & Views Page 7 July 22nd, 2010 The Pastor's Column Obituary An important part of human interaction is humor. We love to hear and tell jokes. In this part of the country Ole and Lena form the basis of many humorous stories. Children and adults love "knock, knock" jokes. Others enjoy "dry" humor, which is the "making of humorous remarks ina matter of fact way" (Webster's). Some jokes are simple on- liners, while others tell a story before finally coming to an unexpected punch line. For example: A judge sentenced a 95 year old man to twenty- five years in prison. When the elderly man protested, saying, "But judge I'm an old man, I won't live that long." The judge responded saying, "Well, do the best you can." God built within the mind of man the ability to tell, appreciate andlaugh at awide variety of humor styles. There are two Old Testament verses I would like to reference here, even though they do not specifically mention humor. The first comes from Ecclesiastes 3:2. Here the author observes that there is "a time to weep, and a time to laugh". The other, also written by Kin Solomon, says, merry heart doeth good like a medicine" (Proverbs 17:22). We are never told that Jesus ever sat around telling jokes, Pembina County Meals and We will be having some "Whimsical Wednesday" presentations in July. On July 7th, Jon Deschene from the Alzheimer's Association will give a presentation on "How To MaintainYour Brain". He will share tips and ideas on how to keep our brains active. Jon gave a presentation in June that dealt with symptoms of Alzheimer's disease. In this presentation he will share ideas on how to avoid Alzheimer's disease. Bey Aufenkamp will give a demonstration on July 14th on how to make garden towers. These are very interesting works of art made from a whimsical mix of colors, shapes and finishes. Items that can be used are stacked lamp bases, bowls, vases, candlesticks and cake stands in clear and colored glass, porcelain, and metal. The items are fastened together with a waterproof adhesive. The glass towers are a great way to create art from old or unused items that may be sitting around your house or garage. Bey will demonstrate how to make the garden towers on July 14th, and then on July 28th we will have a "Whimsical Wednesday" session where people can bring in their own items and Bey will assist but it is not hard to imagine Him enjoying a good laugh or telling a funny story. The only time joking is condemned is when it has been corrupted by sin. Paul writes in Ephesians five that there are certain thing which are off limits for Christians. Among them is ~thy talking and jestering, which is defined as "indecency sugar-coated in mirth to make it more corrupting; course jesting; obscene and offensive conversation" (Dake's). The sinful world prefers off-color stories, but God's people should neither listen to, laugh at, nor tell that which God condemns. by pastor leroy aufenkamp you in putting together your own garden tower. the counter drugs and how to dispose of them.
