What to do with Leftover Sunday School Literature

This is just too funny to pass up! Every pastor worth his salt has wondered what to do with the Sunday School literature once the quarter is over. I know most churches simply bunker the landfills with it though some are more conscientious--they take it to the local recycling center. However, here are a few good ideas, and #2 is JUST FUNNY!
2. Leave them in places where people read while they're doing something else. "Accidentally" leave a copy at the coffee shop. Leave copies on the magazine rack at the fitness center. In the seatback pocket on an airplane. Did I hear someone say the bathroom? Which reminds me of a story. One day, a group of Baptist women told me their husbands wouldn't read stuff from the church. I shared with them a wise truth: He'll read anything you leave in the bathroom.
Indeed!

Our church used to (and may still, I honestly don't know) send ours to a missionary on the TX/MEX border. They used it in their schools to help teach English, or something, and possibly in their English Sunday Schools.

#2 is right. I will read darn near anything in the bathroom. Heck, I've read a section of the Wall Street Journal that someone left, and I have no interest in finance whatsoever!

at least, NOW, I can rest in the satisfaction of knowing it is not ME that completely derails the conversations on this blog. . ..

Now that's just funny. Maybe someone can form an organization like the Gideons, except instead of leaving a Bible in every hotel room they can leave Sunday School literature in every bathroom in America.
