GCF: The Golfing Preacher

There was this preacher who was an avid golfer. Every chance he could
get, he could be found on the golf course swinging away. It was an obsession.

One Sunday was a picture perfect day for golfing. The sun was
shining, no clouds in the sky, and the temperature was just right.
The preacher was in a quandary as to what to do ... play golf or give
the Sunday service. Shortly, the urge to play golf overcame him. He
called an assistant, told him he was sick and asked the assistant to
take care of the Sunday church service for him. He packed the car up
and drove three hours to a golf course where no one would recognize
him. Happily, he began to play the course.

An angel up above was watching the preacher and was quite perturbed.

He went to God and said, "Look at the preacher. He should be punished
for what he is doing." God nodded in agreement.

The preacher teed up on the first hole. He swung at the ball and hit
a perfect drive, straight as an arrow, four-hundred yards right to
the green, where it gently rolled into the cup (as they say in
basketball, "nothing but net"). A picture perfect hole-in-one. He was
amazed and excited.

The angel was a little shocked. He turned to God and said, "Begging
Your pardon, but I thought you were going to punish him."

God smiled. "I did. Think about it -- who can he tell?"

If you want to test your memory, try to recall what you
were worrying about one year ago today.
