Temperance

A friend of mine has just sent me this story about a Temperance Meeting - I'd heard it before, but still worth sharing!

See you at the river!

The Temperance Sermon

A minister was completing a temperance sermon. With great emphasis he said,
'If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river.'

With even greater emphasis he said,
'And if I had All the wine in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river.'

And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he said,
'And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river.'

Sermon complete, he sat down.

The song leader stood very cautiously and announced with a smile, nearly laughing,
'For our closing song,
Let us sing Hymn #365,

'Shall We Gather at the River.'

~~

Smile, life is too short not to!
