A pastor skipped services one Sunday to go bear hunting in the mountains. As he turned the corner along the path, he and a bear collided. The pastor stumbled backwards, slipped off the trail, and began tumbling down the mountain with the bear in hot pursuit.
Finally the pastor crashed into a boulder, sending his rifle flying in one direction and breaking both his legs. The pastor was lying there, he'd lost his gun, and the bear was coming closer.
He cried out in desperation, "Lord, I repent for all I've done. Please make this bear a Christian."
The bear skidded to a halt at the pastor's feet, fell to its knees, clasped its paws together and said, "Lord, I do thank you for the food I am about to receive."
