On a cold, rainy Sunday morning, the church organist came down with the flu, so the substitute organist came in to the minister's office. "What should I play?" he asked. Obviously annoyed, the minister replied, "Well, my sermon is on forgiveness, so you can think of something to go along with that. But first, you'll have to let me make a few announcements. The organist walked into the sanctuary for the service.
When it came time, the minister walked up and said, "Okay, as you all know, there was a storm last night that damaged the roof of part of our building. We need money to repair this. If you are willing to donate $100, please stand." At that moment, the substitute organist played the Star Spangled Banner. And that is how the substitute organist became the full time organist.
