5 Signs You May Be A United Methodist

1. As you get older, you can't read the hymnal, but you can see cobwebs in the corners of the sanctuary

2. You don't know what apastolic and universal means, but you can pronounce and spell it

3. You think "Onward Christian Soldiers" is the most repulsive, boring hymn ever written, but sing it anyway

4. Confuse sex with dancing, but rarely the other way around

5. Think drinking alcohol is a sin, but you do it anyway, because it gives you something to feel guilty about while you're watching other people dance.

I'm not Methodist but I love stuff like this. My mind is mulling over what a Baptist version might look like.
