The People In This Congregation

by Wayne Greeson

An old man was sitting out on his front porch whitlin’ and enjoying the sunny day. Into town drove a stranger who stopped in front of the old man’s house. The stranger rolled down his car window, stuck his head out and yelled, “Hey, old man, what kind of people are in this town?”
The old gent leaned back, looked at the stranger and said, “Well fella, just what kind of people were there in the town you just came from?”
“Why they were the most unfriendly, unlikable and disagreeable folks you ever saw” the man replied.
“Well,” answered the old man, “That’s just the kind of people that are in this town.” With that answer the stranger roared off out of town and out of sight. A little while later, into town drove another stranger. This man saw the older man on his porch and he pulled up, stopped the car and got out.
“Good afternoon sir. How are you this fine day?” the young man cheerfully called out.
“I’m doin’ very well thank you, and it is a mighty fine day” the older man grinned.
“Well sir, I’m a little new around here, mind if I sit and we talk a bit?” the younger man inquired.
“Sure, come on up here and sit” the older man invited.
The younger man ambled up and took a seat on the broad porch.
Well, there is really just one question I have,” he began, “What kind of people are in this town?”
The older man gently smiled, “Well, just what kind of people were in the town you came from?”
“Well sir, they were the friendliest, nicest, most likable folks you’d ever want to meet” the young man eagerly responded.
“Well, my good friend, that’s jus’ the kind of folks you’ll find here.”
