Chapter 3: Living with the Eternal

The veteran preacher was instructing a class of new ministers on the importance of facial expressions harmonizing with their sermons.

“When you speak of heaven,” he said, “let your face light up, let it be bright with a heavenly gleam, let your eyes shine with reflected glory. But when you speak of hell - well, your ordinary face will do.”

A Frenchman, a Swiss and an Italian are on a flight to Italy in their little private plane. As the weather gets bad they get lost in the clouds. The Frenchman puts his hand out of the window and suddenly says, “I touched the Eiffel Tower. This must be France.”

After a while the Swiss man puts his hand out of the window and says, “We are home. This is Switzerland; I touched the mountains.”

Finally the Italian sticks his hand out of the window and says, “This must-a be Italy.”

“How do you know?” asked the others.

The Italian pulls his hand in and says, “They stole-a my watch-a.”
