Charles Cotton's Facebook page wrote:Some people commented after the first church service yesterday that I was chucking when Pastor Brian told us which Scripture was the basis of his sermon. They also said that I appeared to be trying hard not to laugh out loud. Still others looked at me and smiled as they walked by without saying a word. Well, these folks were right. I was desperately trying not to fall on the floor laughing! I either misunderstood what he said, or he misspoke. I suspect it was my fault since I was the only one trying to stifle a guffaw.
Brian always gives a short introduction to the day’s sermon during which he tells us what Scripture we are going to read. This gives folks some time to turn to it. I heard him say, “First Corinthians, Chapter 7, verses 3 and 4. I dutifully turned to I Cor. 7:3-4 and almost hit the floor. My thoughts, in no particular sequence, were: “oh, this is going to be good!” “I want to see him make this work,” “Please Lord, don’t let him chicken out!” “I wish this was on live TV.” “Our blue-hairs are going to be passing out in great big batches.” I actually had one other thought that I won’t publish on Facebook.
Alas, I was mistaken. He actually said “First Corinthians, Chapter 15, verses 3 and 4.” Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
