I love going to church.  That may be a surprise for some.  I love the music and the message.  I always learn something new when I'm there.  It's usually from the Bible but this past Sunday, I learned that Las Vegas Churches accept gambling chips.

This might come to you as a surprise, but there are more churches than casinos in Las Vegas. So when people go to worship on Sunday and it's time for the offering, folks will give casino chips rather than cash when the plate is passed.  The problem is that the chips come from many different casinos.  It was taking a lot of time and effort to cash them all in.

One of the churches came up with a way to speed things up.  They send their collected chips to a nearby Franciscan Monastery to sort and then have the chips taken to the various casinos.  Yes, this is all done by ..........

THE CHIP MONKS.   Have a great week.
