    The Clergyman's Challenge

    A Catholic priest, a Protestant evangelist, and a Jewish rabbi all served as chaplains to the students of a large university. They would get together two or three times a
    week for coffee and to talk shop.

    During one of their weekly meetings the comment was made that preaching to people isn't really all that hard. A real challenge would be to preach to a bear. One thing led to another, and they decided to do an experiment. They would all go out into the woods, find a bear, and attempt to convert it. Seven days later, they all came together to discuss their experience.

    The priest, who had his arm in a sling, was on crutches, and had various bandages on his body and limbs, went first. "Well," he said, "I went into the woods to find a bear. And when I found him, I began to read to him from the Catechism. Well, that bear wanted nothing to do with me and began to slap me around. So I quickly grabbed my holy water, sprinkled him and, Holy Mary Mother of God, he became as gentle as a lamb. The bishop is coming out next week to give him first communion and confirmation."

    The evangelist spoke next. He was in a wheelchair, had one arm and both legs in casts, and had an IV drip. In his best fire-and-brimstone oratory, he exclaimed, "WELL, brothers, you KNOW that we don't sprinkle! I went out and I FOUND a bear. And then I began to read to my bear from God's HOOOOLY WORD! But that bear wanted nothing to do with me. So I took HOLD of him and we began to wrestle. AMEN! We wrestled down one hill, UP another and DOWN another until we came to a creek. So I quickly DUNKED him and BAPTIZED his hairy soul. And just like the priest experienced, he became as gentle as a lamb. The bear and I spent the rest of the day singing hymns."

    The priest and the evangelist both looked down at the rabbi, who was lying in a hospital bed. He was in a body cast and traction with IVs and monitors running in and out of him. Stitches covered every part of his body. He was in really bad shape.

    The Rabbi looked up to his two friends and said, "Looking back on it, circumcision may not have been the best approach."
