The bishop's car ran out of petrol. His wife, who was a passenger remembered seeing a garage half a mile back down the road. He got out the car and started to search the boot of the car for a container, but the only one he could find was his baby grandson's potty - so that had to do!

He trudged to the petrol station, then carefully carried it back with a full container of petrol and started to carefully pour the contents from the potty into the petrol tank.

Driving by was the leader of a new independent church. Recognised a fellow Christian in need and stopped his car to offer-help. As he approached he saw the bishop pouring the contents of the potty into the tank.

The man-gasped and said: "If I'd known they had faith like that in the Church of England I'd never have left!"
