GENEROSITY REPAID

May Kinnersing, email

ONE Sunday a priest asked his congregation to consider giving a bit extra in the offering plate.

After the collection had been taken, the priest noticed that someone had contributed a $100 bill.

Thrilled, he told the congregation hed personally like to thank the person who left the bill, and asked them to come forward.

A quiet, elderly lady stood up and slowly made her way to the front. The priest told her that for being so generous, she could pick out three hymns.

Excitedly, she looked over the congregation, pointed to the three best-looking men in the church and said: Ill take him and him and him.
