A young boy had just passed his Driving Test. He asked his father, who was the Vicar of………….if they could discuss the use of the family car. His father took him to the study and said to him. “I’ll make a deal with you. You do your Course Work on time, study your Bible a little and get your hair cut and we will talk about it”.
After about a month, the boy came back and again asked his father the Rev…………..if they could discuss the use of the family car. They again went to the father’s study where his father said, “Well lad. I have been really proud of you. You have done your Course Work on time, you have studied your Bible diligently, but you didn’t get your hair cut”.
The young lad waited a moment then replied “You know dad, I’ve been thinking about that! You know Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair, Noah had long hair, and indeed Jesus had long hair…….”
To which his father The Rev………..replied. “Yes and they WALKED everywhere they went”.

As Elizabeth made pancakes for her sons David (7) and Peter (5) the boys began to squabble about who was going to have the first pancake from the pan.
Seeing an opportunity for some moral teaching Elizabeth said “If Jesus’ Mum had ever made pancakes, I am sure Jesus would always say, “Give my brother James the first one”.
David (7) turned to his little brother with a gleam in his eye and said, “Peter you can be Jesus, and I’ll be James”.
