The Apostle Peter was a fisherman.  The Apostle Paul was a tent maker.  I sell stuff on Ebay.  Sometimes Craigslist.  

I think it's good for preachers to do stuff other than just preaching sometimes.  Keeps you in the "Loop of Life".  Helps you to relate to the common man.  And...can occasionally make you a few bucks on the side. 

Saturdays are big Craigslist days for me.  Today I'm selling my YUGO.

I LOVE my YUGO.  I feel like a Bible smuggler in it.  It  has a broken driver's side window, the passenger side window is knocked out, and there's a bullet hole in the windshield.

  Everywhere I drive it, people always give me a friendly look that says, "I wish I could help that guy." I wish they could too.  But not really.  I always choose sympathy over actual help. 

With each passing mile, my beloved Yugo gives off the slightly increasing aroma of gasoline, which some find disturbing.  I personally find it relaxing.  Sometimes I drive the long way home just to enjoy it longer.  Of course, if I drive TOO long it's hard to remember how to GET home.

It sounds like a weed-eater when it runs.  Take a listen - 

It was even in a movie once.  Which is how the window and windshield met their doom.

Sigh...I love my YUGO.  I hope I can sell this piece of junk today.  

Then again,  perhaps the Lord has bigger plans for me.  Perhaps he wants me to be a YUGO seller...OF MEN.
And you thought this wasn't going anywhere.  Oh please...

What's that smell? 

As together we stand and sing.



  1. Brother Preacher, your car is so "killer"...remember what I told about the Yugo...It has a fantastic feature, called the rear can use it in the winter to keep your hands warm when you have to push it into the Mechanics for repairs!!!
    >When did you learn to drive "stick"? I figured you for more of an "automatic" know, kind of like your "Preacher on the stump" answers?
    >Be careful with those gas fumes....when you get to the "shapes you can smell", and "colors you can taste" phase of delerium, you might want to pull over and throw on an oxygen mask!!
    Peace. out. click.

  2. "Shapes you can smell" - now THERE's a flannelgraph sermon just WAITING to happen.


  3. How much are you willing to pay to get rid of it?

  4. I will go as high as 5 dollars...what it's worth.
