A Sure Cure
Three Pastors in the south were having lunch in a diner. One said "Ya know, since summer started I've been having trouble with bats in my loft and attic at church. I've tried everything--noise, spray, cats--nothing seems to scare them away. "
Another said "Yea, me too. I've got hundreds living in my belfry* and in the narthex** attic. I've even had the place fumigated, and they won't go away."
The third said, "I baptized all mine, and made them members of the church... Haven't seen one back since!!!"
*Belfry=the part of a bell tower or steeple in which bells are housed
**Narthex=an antechamber, porch, or distinct area
