A Bit of Humor from Rachael
     Thought for the day: Whoever said there is no such thing as a stupid question has never worked in customer service.
    One of my daughter's wedding presents was a toaster oven.
Soon after the honeymoon, she and her husband tried it out. Almost immediately, smoke billowed out of the toaster.
"Get the owner's manual!" my daughter's husband shouted.
"I can't find it anywhere!" cried my daughter a short time later.
"Oops!" came a voice from the kitchen. "Well, the toast is fine, but the owner's manual's burned to a crisp."
A salesman, tired of his job, gave it up to become a policeman. Several months later, a friend asked him how he liked his new role.
"Well," he replied, "the pay is good and the hours aren't bad, but what I like best is that the customer is always wrong."    

The Mission Statement of the Episcopal Church of the Advent is to provide opportunities for worship, fellowship, joy, spiritual growth and community service, all for the love of God.
