A southern Baptist 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 !!
