The substitute wanted to know what to play. "Here's a copy of the order of service", he said, "but you'll have to come up with something to play after I make the announcement about the finances."
At the conclusion of the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty. The roof repairs are going to cost twice as much as we had expected, and we need an additional $4,000. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up."
At that moment, the substitute organist began playing 'The Star Spangled Banner'.....
And that's how the substitute became the regular organist!
Give me a sense of humor, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life,
And pass it on to other folk.
