I read about a preacher who would occasionally go on a personal retreat to pray and seek God’s
direction for his ministry. During one retreat, someone called the church office and asked to
speak with the pastor. The secretary replied, “I’m sorry, he’s gone to be with the Lord.”

There was a long silence on the other end. When the secretary realized what she had said, she
added, “But he’ll be back next week.”
