Pub and Pulpit

In one of the mining villages in the Lothians the public house was owned by a widow whose great desire it was that her son should study for the ministry. In the fulness of time her ambition was realised and her son achieved his call.

Years later he returned to preach in his birthplace and on his way from the station he came across a native and friend of his youth lying on the roadside sadly intoxicated.
    "I'm very sorry John to see you in this state" he said to the prostrate figure.
    "Ay James" retorted the erring one " its a wunnufu thing the drink. Its landit me i this ditch an ye i the meenistry!"
