Extortion!!!

Rej said it was taking a whole day to recover from, and someone said One day? You will NEVER live this one down–it’s going into the history books, right up there with the one about our Old pastor leaving his wireless mic on while he was… in the washroom. :D

It was Rej’s turn for Elder-duty last Sunday at church, which meant, among other things, the Call to Worship. He’s very good at it, belting it out in a wonderful clarion call. Just imagine then, when instead of “Extol the Lord..”, you hear the loud command to “EXTORT the Lord!!” And he just keeps right on going, not even seeming to notice that he said anything wrong.

So of course, everyone seated tried not to notice either… except that I was having a very difficult time of it. He always asks me right afterwards if he was OK, and I could hardly speak for the muffled snuffly-laughter trying to bubble out! He said he did think of it, but thought it was better not to say anything. When it was time for him to announce the offering though, he did get up and tell that I’d asked if he was going to “EXTORT the offering”… :D :D

So there! God must have realized that I needed material for my Funnies-Day! :D :D

And, this isn’t meant to fit, but it is worded in such a way as to bring a smile to your face:

“Post this at all the intersections, dear friends: Lead with your ears, follow up with your tongue, and let anger straggle along in the rear.” (James 1:19)
