The pastor and one of his deacons were walking to parking lot on a frosty day after church. The deacon slipped on the walkway and fell flat on his back.
The pastor, after being assured that the deacon was not injured said, "Friend, sinners stand on slippery places."
The deacon looked up as if to assure himself of the fact said, "I see they do, but I can't."
