The Substitute Organist

The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he was going to ask the congregation to come up with more money than they were expecting for repairs to the church building. Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the regular organist was sck and a substitute had been brought in at the last minute. The substitute wanted to know what to play.

"Here's a copy of the service," he said impatiently. "But, you'll have to mthink of something to play after I make the announcement about the finances."

During the service, the minister paused and said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we expected and we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can pledge $100 or more, please stand up."


At that moment, the substitute organist played "Advance Australia Fair."


And that is how the substitute became the regular organist!

Re: The Substitute Organist

LOL

Oh, I incorrectly "got it", I thought the Advance Australia Fair bit was related to John Howard's catchphrase "Un-Australian" oops

hehe, the correct reason is much funnier!
