    The minister was preoccupied with thoughts of how he
    was going to, after the worship service, ask the
    congregation to come up with more money
    than they were expecting for repairs to the church
    building. Therefore, he was annoyed to find that the
    regular organist was sick and a substitute had been
    brought in at the last minute. The substitute wanted
    to know what to play.
    "Here's a copy of the service," he said
    impatiently. "But you'll have to think of something to
    play after I make the announcement about the
    finances."
    During the service, the minister paused and
    said, "Brothers and Sisters, we are in great
    difficulty; the roof repairs cost twice as much as we
    expected, and we need $4,000 more. Any of you who can
    pledge $100 or more, please stand up."
    At that moment, the substitute organist played "The
    Star-Spangled Banner."
    And that is how the substitute became the regular
    organist!
