The Back Pew

December 15, 2013
A pastor’s wife was expecting a baby, so he stood before – jim
the congregation and asked for a raise. After much discussion, they passed a rule that whenever the pastor’s family expanded; so would his paycheck.
After 6 children, this started to get expensive and the congregation
decided to hold another meeting to discuss the pastor’s expanding salary.
A great deal of yelling and inner bickering ensued, as to how much the
pastor’s additional children were costing the church, and how much more it could potentially cost.
After listening to them for about an hour, the pastor rose
from his chair and spoke, “Children are a gift from God, and we will take as many gifts as He gives us.”
Silence fell over the congregation. In the back pew, a
little old lady struggled to stand, and finally said in her frail voice,
“Rain is also a gift from God, but when we get too much of it, we wear
rubbers” The entire congregation said, “Amen.”
Gotta love those senior citizens!
