preacher, who shall we say was "humor
impaired," attended a conference
to help encourage and better equip
pastors for their ministry.
Among the speakers were many well
known and dynamic speakers. One such
boldly approached the pulpit
and, gathering the entire crowd's
attention, said, "The best years of
my life were spent in the arms of a woman
that wasn't my wife!"
The crowd was shocked! He followed up by
saying, "And that woman was
my mother!" - The crowd burst into laughter and
delivered the rest
of his talk, which went over quite well.
The next week, the
pastor decided he'd give this humor thing a try,
and use that joke in
his sermon. As he surely approached the pulpit that
he tried to rehearse the joke in his head. It suddenly
seemed a bit
foggy to him.
Getting to the microphone he said loudly, "The
greatest years of my
life were spent in the arms of another woma

congregation inhaled half the air in
the room. After standing there for
almost 10 seconds in the stunned
silence, trying to recall the second
half of the joke, the pastor
finally blurted out, "...and I can't
remember who she was!"

And then finally, he said,

I'd take it and throw

He sat down. The song leader then stood very
cautiously and announced
with a smile, "For our closing song, let
us sing Hymn # 365: "Shall We
Gather at the River."
The preacher was wired for sound with a
mike, and as he preached, he moved briskly about the platform,
the mike cord as he went.
Then he moved to one side,
getting wound up in the cord and nearly
tripping before jerking it
again. After several circles and jerks, a little
