The Power Of The National Pledge

Pastor Dixon had a problem; he had to ask the congregation to pledge more money for church repairs than they anticipated.

On his way to chancel, he asked the organist to be ready to play something suitable for the pledging.

At the appropriate time, Pastor Dixon announced, “Brothers and sisters, we are in great difficulty.

Our roof repairs have run five thousand dollars over the estimated cost. That means we must raise that amount this morning.

Any of you who are willing to increase your original pledge, please stand up.”

At that moment the organist tore into “The Star Spangled Banner.” And the whole congregation stood.
