Joker: No stone unturned

The congregation of the small stone church decided that the stone which formed the step up to the front door had become too worn by its years of use, and would have to be replaced.
As a sign of the faithfulness of members over the years, the stone had a pronounced dip in the middle, well-worn by parishioners entering and leaving the chapel.

Unfortunately, there were hardly any funds available for the replacement. Then someone came up with the bright idea that the replacement could be postponed for many years by simply turning the block of stone over.
 
They discovered that their great-grandparents had beaten them to it.
