Three Points

The Meenister’s Log

it used to be the custom (and perhaps it still is with some older ministers) to construct a sermon thus:   Text (a Bible verse or verses), an introduction, and then three points dealing with the theme, and finally, a conclusion.  

Once, a visiting Minister was preaching in one of the churches I served.

At the children’s story time, she asked the youngsters in the congregation “Does your Minister have three points?”

Silence

Then a wee voice pipes up, “The Hearts got three points against Hibs yesterday!”

Out of the mouths………
