Holly Church

In rural churches sometimes a run-down on church expenditure is given: during the year. A young priest who had modern ideas and approaches felt that this was not appropriate unless the reading out of the balance-sheet was done in prayer form. He instructed the congregation to intone Amen after each item read out. The reading went something like this:
To the sacristan .... 50 Amen.
To the cleaner......45 Amen.
To the gardener.....65 Amen.
... and so it continued until the priest read:
To the organist.....675, when the congretation sang:
"There's no business like show business.'
