The Preacher’s Expanding Family

There was a preacher whose wife was expecting a baby. The preacher went to the congregation and asked for a raise. After much consideration and discussion, they passed a rule that whenever the preacher’s family expanded, so would his pay check.

After 6 children, this started to get expensive and the congregation decided to hold another meeting to discuss the preacher’s pay. There was much yelling and bickering about how much the clergyman’s additional children were costing the church.

Finally, the preacher got up and spoke to the crowd, "having children is an act of God!" Silence fell on the congregation.

In the back of the room, a little old man stood up and in his frail voice said …. "snow and rain are also acts of God, but when we get too much, we wear rubbers."
