    Alright, one more email joke for the day...

    As the old pastor lay dying, he sent a message for his lawyer and his Congressman to come to the hospital. Seeing how well-liked and respected the Pastor was, both men made all haste to reach his bedside. When they arrived, they were ushered up to his room. As they entered the room, the pastor held out his hands and motioned for them to sit on each side of the bed.

    The pastor grasped their hands, sighed contentedly, smiled, and stared at the ceiling. For a time, no one said anything. Both the Congressman and lawyer were touched that the old man of God would ask them to be with him during his final moments. They were also puzzled because the pastor had never given any indication that he particularly liked either one of them. Finally, the Lawyer asked, 'Pastor, why did you ask us to come here?'

    The old pastor mustered all his strength, then said weakly, 'Jesus died between two thieves, and that's how I'd like to go.'
