Mennonnite Sermon Clock
Mennonite time trials
Moving financial responsiblity to the congregation
Sermon time proportional to stewardship tithing

A Mennonite Pastor, known for his long-winded sermons, decided to make fun of himself for a sermon on stewardship. He stood up on the Sunday before Dedication Sunday, and announced that the board had purchased an electric clock for the sanctuary, so that the Pastor would be more prudent in the length of his sermons.

“Now,” he said, “next Sunday, if this congregation pledges $10,000 more than it did last year, the clock will be installed in the sanctuary.”

“And,” he continued, “if this congregation pledges $20,000 more than last year, the clock will be plugged in.”

“And,” he concluded, “ if this congregation is visionary enough to pledge $25,000 more than last year, I promise to look at the clock.”
