During Henry Ward Beecher’s ministry people would come from far and wide to hear him preach. One particular Sunday, Beecher got sick on Sunday morning and a substitute preacher was called to fill the pulpit. A large crowd had assembled to hear Beecher preach. As the service started it was announced that Beecher had become sick and the visiting preacher was introduced. As he got up to speak, several disappointed listeners from the audience got up and started to leave. That is when the visiting preacher spoke loudly, “All who came here to worship Henry Ward Beecher may now make your exit. All who have come to worship God please keep your seats!”
