You probably won’t be hearing much from me for the next few days. The Lord willing, I’ll be heading for Bethany Beach (pictured below) with part of my family for some much needed rest and relaxation.
Please keep my son, Benjamin, in your prayers. He is in New Orleans this week working with a group that is renovating houses. While there have already been many who have lent a helping hand, the needs that remain in this area are astounding. Several readers of this blog live in or near the hurricane ravaged region. You are very well aware of the fact that there are many needs that have not yet been met.
One additional thought: Perhaps this blogging break would be a good time for some light-hearted fun. Take a minute and search the nether reaches of your memory banks. Look high and low for a tid-bit that you can share. Have you witnessed something funny in a worship gathering? Have you heard a speaker get his tang all toungled up…like he or she got his / her tongue wrapped around his / her eye-teeth so that s/he could not see what s/he was saying? You know what I’m talking about…worship bloopers and the like.
I’ve heard this one several times. A preacher was getting ready to begin his sermon when he looked down and noticed that his pants were partially unzipped. No problem, he thought. He then said, “Before we begin, let’s pray.” As he led the assembled saints in prayer he discretely zipped his pants. But there was a problem, which he didn’t notice until he finished the prayer. For, after the “amen” had been spoken, he raised his head to look at the congregation but felt an unusual tug on his neck. He couldn’t believe it. He had zipped his necktie into his pants! Without missing a beat he said to the bemused assembly, “Let’s pray again.”
Anyone have anything she or he would like to share?
Blessings to all,
