There was a man who one day didn't feel like going to church so he decided to go hunting instead.
He was out in the bush when he was approached from behind by a bear. He dropped his gun by accident but didn't bother to pick it up.
He ran for his life. Weaving in and out the trees with the bear on his trail. Curving around a tree he tripped over its root.
He looked up and the bear looked down. The bear was about to strike at him. He put his hands together and prayed: "Dear lord, Please let this bear become a Christian."
The bear suddenly sat down on its bum and held the man's hands, closed his eyes and said: "Dear Lord, Thank you for the food that I am about to receive!"
