Closing Sermon

Closing Sermon

A preacher was completing a temperance sermon. With great expression he said, "If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river."

With even greater emphasis, his arms in the air, he said, "And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river."

And then finally, with a raised voice he finished, "And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river."

He sat down and revered silence filled the church.
O'Malley, the song leader who dozed off during the sermon, stood up very cautiously and announced with a smile,

"For our closing song, let us sing Hymn #365: "Shall We Gather at the River."
