Something funny that happened while preaching: As I was preaching in Brooklyn, N.Y. there was a 3 step stool to get to the altar, but it was not nailed to the altar it was just placed by the altar. And as I tried to come down from th altar, under the fire of the sermon, I stepped to the edge of the stool and the stool flipped and I fell right by the first pews of the church.
