True Church Stories - #12

Years ago my husband was wanting to make some changes in the Sunday School department in the church we pastored in Maryland.  The Sunday School Superintendent had been doing the job a long time and was pretty set on what should happen, and was reluctant at first to go in the new direction he was proposing.  They went back and forth over it for quite a while and finally, exasperated and wanting to point out her experience  she said, "Pastor, I'll have you know that I was doing Sunday School when you were still in diapers!!!"  He immediately shot back, "Yes, and I'll still be doing Sunday School when you're back in diapers.  Let's make the change..."

Ha ha ha ha!  My husband can be SO funny.

Thankfully this lady was a tremendous sport and laughed over this and  continued to be one of the most loyal, supportive people we've ever had the privilege of pastoring.  This is probably why he felt it was safe to make such a joke in the first place.  One thing about Larry that I will have to say is, with rare exceptions he has a very good sense of discerning who is safe (or not) to make a comment like this to.  (Who can take a joke, and who can't.)  Me on the other hand...
