It was Christmas season. One parishioner who had stolen a turkey no longer felt at ease with himself. His conscience continued to prick him, so he decided to call on the Vicar.

“It was because my family was hungry that I stole this turkey” the man confessed to the Vicar
“Hun…Hun? Asked the Vicar.
“I believe that I have committed a sin. Would you mind taking the turkey?” requested the parishioner.
“No! Definitely no! I can’t take it” the Vicar said
“Then, what should I do with it?” the parishioner asked
“Give it back to the man you stole it from” the vicar said.
“I have made that offer to him, but he has refused it” the parishioner said.
“Has he?”
“Yes” replied the parishioner.
“Well…” the Vicar said.
While trying to figure out what next the Vicar was going to say, the Parishioner asked the question
“So, what do I do now?”
“If that is the case, then you can keep it and use it to feed members of your family” the Vicar said with serious finality.
The parishioner felt relived when he heard the pronouncement of the Vicar
“Thank you for your help, my Vicar”. He said
As if the Vicar was going to change his mind the next minute, the parishioner carried the turkey, rushed out of the church premises, and raced away.
Later that afternoon, when the Vicar got back to the vicarage, he discovered that somebody had stolen his ‘Christmas Turkey’.
