To make you Smile - Pastor Story

Pastor O ‘Riley woke up Sunday morning and realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful, sunny day, decided he just had to play golf.

After all, there was already a nip of fall in the air and how many more gorgeous days like this would there be before the cold weather came?

So... he told the Associate Pastor that he wasn’t feeling well, and persuaded him to deliver the sermon that day.

As soon as the Associate Pastor left the room, Pastor O’Riley headed out of town to a golf course about forty miles away.

This way he knew he wouldn't run into anyone he knew from his church.

Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in church!

Just then Pastor O’Riley hit the ball and it shot straight towards the hole, dropping just short of it, when it began to roll and fell right into the hole.


St. Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked, "Why did you let him do that?"

The Lord smiled and replied, "Who's he going to tell?
