Pastor With Bad News, Good News

The pastor stood before the congregation and said “I have bad news, I have good news, and I have more bad news.” The congregation got quiet. “The bad news is: the church needs a new roof!” the pastor said. The congregation groaned. “The good news is: we have enough money for the new roof.” A sigh of relief was heard rippling through the gathered group. “The bad news is: it’s still in your pockets.” (Lou Nicholes - Missionary/Author)
