Lambs United Methodist Church, Wales Township, Michigan, held a moment of silence last week to honor one of their model members — a wild turkey. The Rev. James Huff, pastor of the church, said the turkey regularly attended Sunday services and greeted people as they arrived. "He would kind of wait for me to come in," Huff told the Times Herald of Port Huron. "He knew when I got there. Service was about to begin, and then he would sit on one lady's car until we were done."
Area residents reported that the turkey died last week after it was hit by a car on a road near the St. Clair County church. Congregation members immediately noticed that the fowl was absent, since he never missed a service.

I'd like to have more people who came to church every Sunday, but I would prefer that they actually come into the church, rather than sit in the parking lot until the service was over. :) Just in case you were wondering, Wales Township, MI is located on the eastern side of the state, above Detroit. It is pretty close the the Canadian border of Ontario.
