Methodist Light Bulbs

"Question: How many Methodists does it take to change a light bulb?

  • How dare you change the light bulb — my grandmother donated it 50 years ago! 
  • Seven — that's the number CPD requires to make the meeting quorate. 
  • Change??!!"

    Helen develops the joke and the implications for the church. She makes the case for the church being a 'transformational community'. She continues...

    "...we are a transformative community because we change the flavour of Aylesbury by our very presence. Through support of those in need; an openness to those who don't belong; through generosity, hospitality, practical care and prayerful listening, we change the landscape around us. When we truly believe the church exists, not for ourselves, but for those who do not yet belong, we cannot help but transform.

    So the question remains: How many Methodists does it take to change a light bulb? "
