Gather at the River

BY: SusanD

A preacher is winding up his temperance sermon with great fervor. "If I
had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river!"
he shouts.

The congregation cries out, "Amen!"

"And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and throw it in the
river!"

The congregation cries, "Amen!"

By now, worked into frenzy, the preacher yells, "And if I had all the
whiskey and demon rum in the world, I'd take it all and throw it in the
river!"

And the congregation again cries, "Amen!"

The preacher sits down, exhausted. Then the deacon stands up and calmly
announces, "And now, for our closing hymn, let us turn to page 126 and
sing, 'We shall gather at the river.'"
