Cup O' Joe with Bill has a parody of Starbucks recent shutdown for training.

Here's the first part... follow the link to read the whole article... but ONLY if you understand satire... All religious people with no sense of humour leave while there is still time!

Today, starting at 5:30 p.m. (local time), your neighborhood church is closing. Yes, yours -- and yours, too. (If you live in the U.S., that is.) CSO (Chief Shepherd of Operations) Jesus Christ has ordered emergency intensive remedial training, hopefully giving church leaders valuable Ephesians 4:11-12 volunteer-equipping skills they should have learned in Bible college or seminary. One of the skills -- which, according to one New York church pastor involved in the remedial training program, was a "revelation" to many of his church workers -- is a discipling technique originally developed, initiated, modeled, and commanded by Jesus himself that shows church staffers how to "develop volunteers for ministry by first building authentic relationships with them" (rather than just merely using them to fill a slot somewhere in the ministry). The ultimate goal of this shut-down-for-training is that everyone will ultimately be trained to love God and love people inside AND outside the body of Christ.

I, too, am laughing.

I'll also be ordering a grande espresso roast.
