Have any of you been confronted with a “good news, bad news” situation lately? I heard about a man who got a call from his doctor. The doctor said, “Your test results are in, and I’ve got good news and bad news for you.”

The man said, “Okay --- give me the good news first.”

The doctor said. “The good news is: your test results indicate you have 3 days to live.”

“That’s the good news?” the guy exclaimed. “For heaven’s sake, what’s the bad news?”

Well,” said the doctor, “The bad news is: I forgot to call you yesterday.”


In today’s sermon I have some good news and some bad news for you. The good news is --- the church is like a family.

The bad news is ------the church is like a family.
