The telephone rings in the pastor’s office. “Hello, is this Pastor Johns?” the caller asks.

“Yes it is.”

“This is the tax department. We wonder if you can help us”

The pastor feels butterflies in his tummy. Why is the tax department ringing him? Nervously he replies “I’ll do the best I can.”

“Do you know a Bruce Parker?” asks the tax agent.

“Why yes” replies the pastor. “He’s a member of my congregation.”

“Did he donate $10,000 to the church building fund?”

A smile comes across the Pastor’s face. “He will.”
