Christian Clippings, p. 27
A minister pleasantly surprised his congregation by delivering a 10-minute sermon instead of the usual 30-minute message. In concluding he explained, "I regret to inform you, brethren, that my dog, who appears to be inordinately fond of paper, this morning ate that portion of my sermon which I have not delivered. Let us pray."
After the service a stranger from another church approached the pastor and said, "Preacher, please let me know if that dog of yours has any pups. If it does, I want to buy one for my minister."
