Two church elders were having a beer...

Two elders drove to a nearby Applebee's after an early evening meeting at church.  While waiting for a table, they sat in the bar drinking a beer.  When their pastor walked by, one quickly said, "Oh, I hope Pastor didn't see us."

"What difference does that make?" asked the other.  "God knows we're having a beer."

"Sure," replied the first, "but God won't tell my wife."

From a dear friend, George Kottwitz, a member of our LCMS home congregation in Edwardsville, Illinois.  He never failed to have a joke to share and he never failed to put a smile on my face.  I've lost track of George but I sure haven't forgotten him.
