The minister of a city church enjoyed a drink now and
then, but his passion was for peach brandy. One of his
Congregates would make him a bottle each Christmas.
One year, when the minister went to visit his friend,
hoping for his usual Christmas present, he was not
disappointed, but his friend told him that he had to thank
him for the peach brandy from the pulpit the next Sunday.

In his haste to get the bottle, the minister hurriedly
agreed and left. So the next Sunday the minister suddenly
Remembered that he had to make a public announcement
that he was being supplied alcohol from a member of the church.
That morning, his friend sat in the church with a grin on
his face, waiting to see the minister's embarrassment.

The minister climbed into the pulpit and said, "Before
we begin, I have an announcement. I would very much like to
thank my friend, Joe, for his kind gift of peaches ...
and for the spirit in which they were given!"
