The pastor stood before the congregation and said; “I have bad news, I have good news, and I have more bad news.”
The congregation got quiet.
“The bad news is: the church needs a new roof!” the pastor said. The congregation groaned.
“The good news is: we have enough money for the new roof.”
A sigh of relief was heard rippling through the gathered group.
“The bad new is: it’s still in your pockets”.
