Dr Leslie Weatherhead, the famous author and preacher, once arrived rather earlier than expected in a town with which he was not familiar.
He had an evening engagement, and the only place he could find to pass the time was a public house opposite the church. He went in, ordered a glass of lemonade, and was soon in animated conversation with some of the customers.
As he rose to leave, one of the men said to him, “Sir, if the likes of you came in here more often, perhaps the likes of us would go to church more often!”
With many peaceful blessings
