The new pastor decided to visit the children's Sunday school class.  The teacher introduced him to the children and said, "Pastor Jones, this morning we're studying Joshua."

"That's wonderful," said the new pastor, "let's see what you're learning. How about we start with this...who can give me an answer to this . . . .  who tore down the walls of Jericho?"

Little Billy shyly raised hand and offered, "Pastor, I didn't do it."

Taken aback, the pastor asked, "Come on, now, *WHO* tore down those walls of Jericho?"

The teacher, interrupting, said, "Pastor, Billy's a good boy. If he says he didn't do it, I believe he didn't do it."

Flustered, the pastor left the room and went directly to the Sunday school director and related the story to him.

The director, looking worried, explained,

"Well, sir, we've had some problems with Billy before.  Let me talk to him and see what we can do."

Huh? Really bothered now by the answers of the teacher and the director, the new pastor approached the deacons and related the whole story, including the responses of the teacher and the director.

A white-haired gentleman thoughtfully stroked his chin and said, "Well, Pastor, I move we just take the money from the general fund to pay for the walls and leave it at that."
