Holy Humor

stained glass crossThe minister was  preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to  ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were expecting for repairs to the church building. Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the regular organist was sick and a substitute had  been brought in at the last minute. The substitute wanted to know what to play.

"Here's a copy of  the service," he said impatiently. "But, you'll  have to think of something to play after I make  the announcement about the finances."

During  the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the  roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected and  we need $4,000 more.  Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up."

At that moment, the substitute organist played "The Star  Spangled Banner."

And that is how the substitute became the regular  organist!

Put a smile on your face…and share it with someone today.  No foolin’!!!  Happy April, y’all!

Most excellent! I like the way that organist thinks!

Would you believe that yesterday at BWTB someone was telling me that the pastor of a local church actually refused to go pray for a friend who is church member who was in the hospital because she was behind in her tithes? That was a jaw-dropper for me!

What did you think of The Harvest? I loved it when it started out but as it went on, I was very disappointed.

Happy Monday. It's hawt down here in south jawjah! Big hugs xoxo
