Pastor Smith answers the phone.

A voice on the other end of the line says, "Hello, is this Pastor Robert Smith?"

"It is"

"Pastor Robert Smith of the Emmanuel Baptist Church in Springfield?"

"It is."

"This is the IRS. Can you help us?"

"I'll try."

"Do you know a Ted Houlihan?"

"I do."

"Is he a member of your congregation?"

"He is."

"Has he made a donation of $10,000 to the Emmanuel Baptist Church?"

"He will".

Sorry, sir - as Pastor I do not handle the church finances, nor do I know what anyone gives.

In case you missed it; this was posted in the Humor section.

As for your statement: It is the Pastor's responsibility to oversee the assembly. I would think that financial matters would fall under this responsibility

 

One thing I learned in 20 years of military service is that one may delegate responsibility; but he is still held accountable.
