Apple Church draws iFaithful - LarkNews.com - A Good Source for Christian News | The Amused Catholic: an Ezine | Scoop.it

RICHMOND, Va. — Tom Riley and his Apple-fanatic ministry buddies joked for years about inspiring the same loyalty for Jesus as people have toward their iPhones and iPads.

Finally, Riley decided to take the logical step.

He gave his church a temporary make-over, putting the Apple symbol behind the pulpit and hanging a banner outside dubbing it “Apple Church.” The gimmick was meant to last a month and generate community interest.

My youngest kids are finally getting the idea that there is a baby—not an image, or a concept, or one of those weird grown-up stories, but an actual human being—inside my belly. They can tell it’s true, because they can see what is unmistakably a little baby butt, bopping around about 18 degrees northwest of what used to be my belly button.

Well, I’ll tell you. There isn’t. There is no room. My midwife said today that she thought baby was “maybe a little on the big side.” Hearing that was like passing a highway sign that warns, “LOW FLYING AIRCRAFT.” Thanks for letting me know, but what am I supposed to do about it? Duck?
