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!
If this brightened your day
Don't let it stop here
Pass it on with a smile
Keep spreading the Cheer.
See you at the river
