Ann Posted August 23, 2007 Share Posted August 23, 2007 There was a Preacher whose wife was expecting a baby, so he went before the congregation and asked for a raise. After much discussion, they passed a rule that whenever the Preachers family expanded, so would his paycheck. After six children, this started to get expensive and the congregation decided to hold another meeting to discuss the Preachers salary. There was a lot of yelling and bickering about how much the clergymans additional children was costing the church. Finally the Preacher got up and spoke to the croud. "Children are a gift from God" he said and silence fell on the congregation. In the back pew, a little old lady stood up and in her frail voice said, "Rain is a gift from God, but when we get too much of it,we wear rubbers." And the congegation said "Amen" Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
