Theology Joke

The young minister was asked by a funeral director to conduct a grave-side service for a homeless man, with no family or friends, at a cemetery way back in the country. The minister got lost and finally saw the backhoe in the field and the grave diggers but no hearse in sight, and he dashed over to the grave where he saw the vault lid was already in place and he opened up his Bible and he preached about God's mercy and the parable of the Prodigal Son and the hope of the Resurrection, and then he bowed his head in prayer. And one of the workers said, "I ain't never seen anything like this before . . . and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years."

(Found here).

p.s. More laughs per tweet if you choose to follow me through Twitter.

We used to have a local "Backhoe and Septic Service" that included the line on the bottom of their truck doors, "Grave Digging a Specialty."
Then I learned that our town's "Vault Company" actually makes most of its income from septic tanks.
I am now convinced that death is the ultimate humbling experience.
