The finance committee of First Unitarian Universalist Church of Aipotu was trying to develop a budget that would finally pull the church out of the red. One member of the committee presented a severe austerity budget. “If we follow this budget,” he said, “we can cut our operating expenses in half.”
The chair of the committee said, “I have an idea how we can live on less than that.”
“How?” everyone asked.
“Live on two budgets.”
