He'd just witnessed the Pastoral Selection Committee reject applicant after applicant for various minor faults -- real or imagined. It was time, he thought, for a bit of soul-searching on the part of the committee. So, after the meeting adjourned, he wrote a letter to the Pastoral Selection Committee, which he stood-up and read at the next Pastoral Selection meeting. Supposedly, the letter was from another Pastoral applicant.
Gentlemen: Understanding your pulpit is vacant, I should like to apply for the position. I have many qualifications. I've been a preacher with much success and also had some success as a writer. Some say I'm a good organizer. I've been a leader most places I've been.The chairman than turned to the other committee members and said, "Well, what do you think? Shall we call him?"
The good church committee members were appalled! Consider a sickly, trouble-making, absent-minded, ex-jailbird? Are you crazy, they asked? Who signed that application? Who had such colossal gall to think we would consider someone like that to be our church minister?
The chairman of the board eyed all the committee members keenly before he replied -- "It's signed: 'The Apostle Paul'."
Addendum -- Luke 6:37 (NKJ) "Judge NOT, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven."
