Brevity is the soul of e-mail.
James Hilden-Minton wrote this funny post to the Unitarian Universalist Christian Fellowship e-mail list — we were going on and on, it seems — and gave me permission to share it:
Q: Can Unitarians be succinct?
A: No, because they're still trying to convince themselves.
Q: Can Pentecostals be succinct?
A: No, because God still needs convincing in these latter days to rain down blessing and to bind the powers of Satan.
Q: Can Mormons be succinct?
A: Yes, just don't invite them in.
Q: Can Jews be succinct?
A: Maybe. Some say yes, others say no. Who can tell?
Q: Can Congregationalists be succinct?
A: A committee will be formed to address this question. The nominating committee is currently looking for people who are willing or can be persuaded to serve on this committee.
Q: Can Episcopalians be succinct?
A: Nay and verily, it is meet, proper, and salutary indeed to go on heartily and with much wind.
Q: Can Catholics be succinct?
Q: Can yoga enthusiasts be succinct?
A: Our Guruji is supremely succinct. The Beloved Chelas can listen to Bhagavan Sri Blabanandanandanandananda for hours.
Q: Can Southern Baptists be succinct?
A: No, because there is still time to convince the Unitarians, Jews, Catholics and just about everyone else who needs saving knowledge of Jesus Christ to turn to Him as their personal Lord and Savior.
Q: Can Zen Buddhists be succinct?
A: the sound of two ears listening
Q: Can James be succinct?
A: Not likely.
