Just a Trouble Maker

A small church was seeking a new minister and received the following letter of application:

Dear Committee Brethren,
Please consider me to lead your flock.
I have been a preacher of some success, and also have written much about the Gospel.
I'm also a good organizer and leader.
I'm over 50 years old, and have never been in one place for over three years.
I admit that I have had to leave some congregations after I caused riots and disturbances, and have been imprisoned several times, but not for doing anything illegal.
Even though my health is not good, I get a great deal accomplished.
Some of the other Church leaders in towns where I've worked have not gotten along well with me, and some even have threatened and attacked me.
I have baptized lots of folks, but, since I have not kept good records, I have forgotten whom I have baptized.
I believe I can do a good job for your congregation.

One Committee member was aghast, and asked,
"Call an unhealthy, trouble-making, absent minded, exconvict to such a position of trust? Who has had such arrogance to submit that application?".

The letter was signed, "The Apostle Paul".
