A wealthy deacon was opposed to the renovation of the church building. One day, at a deacons’ meeting, he spoke out firmly against it. No sooner had he spoken, than a piece of plaster fell from the ceiling and hit him on the shoulder. “I take that back!” he said. “I’ll give a hundred dollars!” As he sat back in a contemplative pose, another piece of plaster fell and hit him on the HEAD. “I’ll raise that to a THOUSAND dollars,” he said. At that, a fellow deacon was seen to cast his eyes heavenwards and mutter, “Hit him, again, Lord! Hit him again!”
