Raising Money for the Church Joke

0 0EmailPrintFollow

A minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were expecting for repairs to the church building.

So, he talked to the organist to see what kind of inspirational music she could play after the announcement about the finances to get the congregation in a giving mood.

"Don't worry," she said. "I'll think of something."

During the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected, and we need $4,000. more. Any of you who can pledge $100. or more, please stand up."

Just at that moment, the organist started playing, "The Star Spangled Banner."
