Three pastors, attending their monthly ministerial association meeting, shared what was happening in their congregations.
"Things are starting to look up for us," said the Baptist preacher, "we gained three new members last month."
"We did better than that!" said the Methodist, "I think revival may be coming! We gained six new people last month!"
"Well, we did even better than that!" exclaimed the Presbyterian, "Revival has come! We lost nine of our biggest troublemakers!"
