|The Pastor's Attention Getter
The pastor of a big church couldn't get the attention of his members;
they were always talking during his sermons.
One Sunday morning he came up with the idea that he would say a word
and when he smacked his podium
someone, was to stand up and sing the first song that came to
He began his sermon and said "RIVER," and slammed his hand on
the podium. A little boy stood up and sang,
"We Shall Gather At The River." So the pastor continued and said
"GRACE," and then slammed his hand down on
the podium and a woman stood up and started singing "Amazing
The preacher then continued and said "SEX," and then slammed his
hand down on the podium. An elderly woman
stood up and started singing, "PRECIOUS MEMORIES HOW THEY LINGER."
