Fishing season starts soon:

A little boy was late for Sunday school. His teacher, seeing him slip in, asked him the reason. The boy shuffled his feet for a moment, then told the teacher: "I started out to go fishing instead, but my dad wouldn't let me."

The teacher beamed broadly, "He was quite right not to let you go fishing on a Sunday. Did he explain to you why?"

The little boy nodded. "Oh yes, he said there wasn't enough bait for the two of us."

What does the sign of the fish mean in Christianity? <><

Christians often wear the silhouette of a fish
to designate their beliefs.  The Greek word for fish, "icthus,"
mysteriously forms the acronym for the Greek expression
"Jesous Christos Theou Uios Soter."  The English translation
is "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior." 

Pretty cool how that worked out, isn't it.  Another one of
those "amazing coincidences," right?  So go get yourself a
little fishy today and wear it proudly!  When people ask you
what it means, you get to share your faith!
