Comedy quotations from the Edwin Stephen Griffiths Lecture
Held at the South Wales Baptist College on 11 March 2009.
A deacon questioned if the woman minister would be physically able to baptise a man. The response:
“Good gosh man – have you seen her hands?!”
If baptism is like birth...
“Should we add a new bit to the end and give them a slap?”
Baptism without coming into fellowship is like saying:
“I want to be married, but not actually to anybody”
From the speaker to a tutor, repeatedly:
“I wish you’d behave!”
One person’s relationship with chocolate is:
“...outright adoration, within the bounds of idolatry”
“Your mission should you choose to accept it is to save the entire church. Good luck.”
From one tutor, to a superior:
“I’m just glad you realised that if you were perfect, that isn’t you!”
“I found myself struck down in Asda whilst pushing a trolley with appendicitis”.
