Faith and Religion
I know how hard it is to raise funds for almost anything these days. A member of our church contacted me and said they were having a benefit on June 28. I said I was sorry that we'd be unable to make it due to a prior commitment, but I would be there "in spirit" with them.
Undaunted, he cheerfully replied, "Great! I have $10, $15 and $20 tickets. Where would you like your 'spirit' to sit?"
Our minister once illustrated a point in his sermon by saying that we have to know where best to plant our seeds. For example, he went on, a rose needs sunlight, but fuchsias need a shady nook to flourish.
On the way out, this one woman couldn't stop complimenting the pastor on his wisdom. Finally she said, "All these years, I've been unable to determine what was the matter with my fuchsias."
I saw a rather clever fund-raising appeal in front of one church not long ago: "You Can't Take it With Ya -- So Send it On Ahead!"
