Improvement, Pessimism

Pastor Joe shocked the congregation when he announced his resignation from the church and a planned move to another church.

After the service a very distraught Mrs. Smith came to the pastor with tears in her eyes, "Oh, Pastor Joe, we are going to miss you so much. We don't want you to leave!"

The kindhearted pastor patted her hand and said, "Now, now, Sue, it’s going to be OK. The pastor who takes my place might be even better than me."

"Yeah, sure", she said skeptically. "That's what Pastor Mike said when he left!"
