A group of Methodist ministers was attending their annual conference at a private countryside resort. Several of them set off to explore the area, and presently they came upon an old bridge that crossed a quiet pond. Unfortunately, they didn't notice a sign declaring the bridge to be unsafe. As they crossed it, the caretaker came running after them. "Hey! You there! Get off that bridge!" he protested. "It's all right," declared one of the ministers, not understanding the reason behind the warning. "We are in this resort with permission. We're Methodists from the Conference." "Oh, I'm not worried about who you are or why you're here," replied the caretaker calmly. "But if you don't get off that bridge, you'll all be Baptists!"
