My wife and I were out for a walk recently when I noticed an older gentleman clearing out the debris from a vacant lot. He was also raking and grooming the landscape.

Curious, I walked out to where he was working and asked him what he was doing. "Reverend Mike is having a prayer service out here this weekend. Y'know, for the neighborhood. I'm just cleaning it up and smoothing it out for folks who want to kneel and such."

Satisfied, I returned to the sidewalk and my wife. She said, "So what's he doing?"

"He's making a level praying field."
