Howie Smith, senior deacon in the Community Church called Pastor Peter P. Pagent.
“The boat’s at the church all set to go. Shorten your sermon. I leave by 11:45.”
“Fret not thyself; I’ll quit before 11:45.”
“OK, see you in the morning. Take a bag lunch.”
…..Voice from Heaven: “What if my message is not finished?”
“Uhh, uhh. You see, Lord, Howie is getting pretty old, he might fall in and drown if someone is not there to rescue him. Not exactly “ox in the ditch” but pretty close, isn’t it? And we will say grace for the food.”
