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

I grew up Catholic, and always had to try not to laugh when the offertory song (when they pass the basket for money) was:
"Take our Bread"

Thanks! I just copied and emailed to about a dozen friends, mostly from church (including the pastor)!
