Understanding

A young clergyman, fresh out of seminary, thought it would help him better understand the fears and temptations his future congregations faced if he first took a job as a policeman for several months.

He passed the physical examination; then came the oral exam to test his ability to act quickly and wisely in an emergency.

Among other questions he was asked, “What would you do to disperse a frenzied crowd?”

He thought for a moment and then replied, “I would take up a collection."

  20. I could just imagine him attending a civil riot with a collection plate. I think tear gas would produce better results. Get them mixed up though & it could have disastrous results at church.
    "Why is the congregation crying???"
