In church one sunday the vicar was disappointed to find that his congregation consisted of just one farmer. Wondering whether he should hold the service, he decided to ask the man’s opinion. ‘If I take a bucket of food to my hens and only one shows up, I dont send it away hungry’, said the farmer thoughtfully. Moved by this simple analogy, the minister climbed into his pulpit and delivered a vigorous and lengthy sermon. ‘Did you enjoy the service?’ enquired the vicar when he had finished. The farmer replied testily, ‘When only one hen turns up, I don’t give it the entire bucket.’
