The idea that a contribution to an offertory might be given with a coin of greater value than the donor wishes to give and receive the balance as change has often been the subject of joke, but ou this Sunday such a thing actually happened. ? A well-dressed member of the congregation dropped a shilling into the bag, with the busi ness-like request, ' Teupence change, please!'
