",,,in mysterious ways..."
(I totally stole this little gem from a forwarded email so I have no idea from whence it came. If you're the original author, I hereby give you full credit!)

This should keep you chuckling for awhile...

    A bar called Drummond's (in Mt Vernon, Texas ) began construction on an expansion of their building, hoping to "grow" their business.

    In response, the local Southern Baptist Church started a campaign to block the bar from expanding - petitions, prayers, etc.

    About a week before the bar's grand re-opening, a bolt of lightning
struck the bar and burned it to the ground!

    Afterward, the church folks were rather smug - bragging about "the power
of prayer".

    The angry bar owner eventually sued the church on grounds that the
church... "Was ultimately responsible for the demise of his building,
through direct actions or indirect means."

    Of course, the church vehemently denied all responsibility or any
connection to the building's demise.

    The judge read carefully through the plaintiff's complaint and the
defendant's reply.

    He then opened the hearing by saying:

    "I don't know how I'm going to decide this, but it appears from the
paperwork that what we have here is a bar owner who now believes in the
power of prayer, and an entire church congregation that does not."

    True story!!
