Careful What You Preach ....

A minister was completing a temperance sermon. With great emphasis he said,
'If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river.'

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

And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he said,
'And if I had all the whisky in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the river.'

Sermon complete, he sat down ...

The choir leader stood up very cautiously and announced with a smile, almost laughing,
'For our closing Hymn, Let us sing from the Revelation,
'Shall We Gather at the River.'
