Church Invention

Does anyone know how you go about getting a patent? I've had this brilliant idea for a church-related invention. Every congregant will be provided with an electronic device like those used on TV shows for audience members to vote. The pulpit will be equipped with a trap door directly under the pastor/priest/minister, and when a majority of the congregation has "locked in their votes" that the sermon should, in fact, be over, the trap door opens and the preacher plummets through the floor (to a soft, pillowy landing - I'm not being mean), and the organist begins the postlude.

Thus ends church, and always in a timely fashion henceforth.

What do you think?


  1. what, no closing hymn to affirm the Word of God that has just been preached?

  2. I laughed out loud!

  3. LOL we're certainly a impulsive culture...I could see how that might work for a TV/reality show, though...there's big bucks in this Sarah. ;) (Think a sort of pie-in-the-face American Idol...)
