Customer to optician …
“At first I was a humanist agnostic, then I saw the light!
I became an earnest seeker after truth, then I saw the light!
I became a theist, then I saw that Jesus was the light and became a Christian.
At first I went to the Anglican church, but soon I saw the light and brecame a Baptist.
Then I saw the light, got baptized in the Spirit and became a Pentecostal.
Then I really saw the light and became a charismatic Catholic.
Then I really, really saw the light and became an apophatic contemplative.
And now, at last, I see the true light shining directly from God’s throne in heaven and I’ve decided to become a Cistercian monk!!!
Please … I’d like to buy a pair of your strongest wrap-around sun-glasses.”
