Preaching to a bear

Recommended Posts

A priest, a Pentecostal preacher and a Rabbi all served as

chaplains to

the students of Northern Michigan University in Marquette.


They would get together two or three times a week for coffee and to




One day, someone made the comment that preaching to people isn't really

all that hard. A real challenge would be to preach to a bear.


One thing led to another and they decided to do an experiment They


all go out into the woods, find a bear, preach to it, and attempt to

convert it.


Seven days later, they're all together to discuss the experience.


Father Flannery, who has his arm in a sling, is on crutches, and has

various bandages, goes first. "Well," he says, "I went into the woods


find me a bear. And when I found him I began to read to him from the

Catechism. Well, that bear wanted nothing to do with me and began to


me around. So I quickly grabbed my holy water, sprinkled him and, Holy

Mary Mother of God, he became as gentle a lamb. The bishop is coming


next week to give him first communion and confirmation."


Reverend Billy Bob spoke next. He was in a wheelchair, with an arm and

both legs in casts, and an IV drip. In his best fire and brimstone

oratory he claimed, "WELL brothers, you KNOW that we don't sprinkle! I

went out and I FOUND me a bear. And then I began to read to my bear


God's HOLY WORD! But that bear wanted nothing to do with me. So I took

HOLD of him and we began to wrestle. We wrestled down one hill, UP

another and DOWN another until we came to a creek. So I quick DUNKED


and BAPTIZED his hairy soul. And just like you said, he became as


as a lamb. We spent the rest of the week in Fellowship, feasting on


Holy Word, and praising Jesus."


They both looked down at the rabbi, who was lying in a hospital bed. He

was in a body cast and traction with IV's and monitors running in and


of him. He was in bad shape.


The rabbi looks up and says, "Looking back on it, circumcision may not

have been the best way to start things out with my bear".
