May The Lord Be With You

The officiating clergyman says, “The Lord be with you” and the congregation used to respond by saying, “And with thy spirit”.

However, with the modernizing of the liturgy, the minister now says, “The Lord be with you,” and everyone responds with, “And also with you”.

One Sunday, a visiting bishop went to a small country church, where the sound system was known to be old and unreliable.

As he approached the microphone, he tapped it several times and finally said, “There’s something wrong with this!”

Without hesitation, the whole congregation answered faithfully, “And also with you.”
