There's an old joke about a physician in her place of worship:
Every week she goes, but no matter how she tries, people disturb her during her prayers. “Doctor, my knee hurts — can you help me out?” asked the farmer. “My child has a rash on his back — what should I do?” asked the mother. After the service one day, the physician shares the problem with one of her friends who is a lawyer. “It really drives me crazy. Every week I come to worship, and I’m sitting there trying to pray, but people come up to me and ask for medical advice. It’s very disturbing, and it gets in the way of my worship. What should I do? . . .
