In a discussion about “clown ministry” there was a reference to a Lutheran pastor and somebody explained:

“Besides going to seminary, he also went to the Barnum & Bailey clown school”

    Cue the rim shot.
    There are some pastors that are just too creative for their own good (or their congregation’s, for that matter).

    What is the definition of a “ministry”? Having seen some of the oddball spending/activities that megachurches engage in (and choose to call “ministries”), apparently a “ministry” can be defined in the following way:
    Ministry (noun): absolutely any expenditure of money or energy that a congregational body engages in. Examples: “I have a sock-puppet ministry that the church supports.” “I get $100 a month to run a diaper-changing ministry at the church’s child care service during Sunday services.” “The youth pastor runs a Chuck E. Cheese pizza ministry every other month.” Individuals who run such ministries are called, respectively, “sock-puppet ministers,” “diaper-changing ministers,” and “pizza-run ministers.”

    Hmm. I had enough trouble with pastors who matriculated through “Enigma School”.
