  • The organist

    The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to, at the end of the worship service, ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were expecting for repairs to the church roof. He was annoyed to find that the regular organist was out and a substitute had been brought in at the last minute. The substitute wanted to know what to play. “Here’s a copy of the service,” the minister said impatiently. “But you’ll have to think of something to play after I make the announcement about the finances.” At the end of the service, the minister paused and said, “Brothers and sisters, we are in great difficulty. The roof repairs will cost twice as much as we expected and we need an additional $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up.” At the moment, the substitute organist played “The Star-Spangled Banner.” And that is how the substitute became the regular.
