This joke was probably written by a preacher! I just want you to know that my congregation does all these things and I’m still alive, and here to stay!
1. Look him straight in the eye and say “Amen” once in awhile. He’ll preach himself to death within a few weeks.
2. Pat him on the back and brag on his good points. He’ll work himself to death.
3. Start paying him a living wage. He’s probably been on starvation wages for so long he’ll eat himself to death.
4. Rededicate your own life and ask the preacher to give you a job to do. He’ll probably die of heart failure.
5. Get the congregation to unite in prayer for the pastor. He’ll become so effective some larger church will soon take him off your hands.
