A priest, a Pentecostal preacher, and a rabbi all served
as chaplains to the students of Northern Michigan
University in Marquette. They would get together two
or three times a week for coffee and to talk shop.

One day, someone made the comment 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, preach to it, and attempt to
convert it.

Seven days later, they all came together to discuss their
experiences.

Father Flannery, 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 me 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."

Reverend Billy Bob 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 claimed, "WELL,
brothers, you KNOW that we don't sprinkle! I went out
and I FOUND me a bear. And then I began to read to my
bear from God's HOLY WORD! But that bear wanted
nothing to do with me. So I took HOLD of him and we
began to wrestle. 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
you said, he became as gentle as a lamb. We spent the rest
of the day praising Jesus."

The priest and the reverend 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.
He was in really bad shape.

The Rabbi looked up and said, "Looking back on it,
circumcision may not have been the best way to start."
