Something funny that happened while preaching: My daughter was helping her friend go to the restroom during a sermon a few weeks back. Somewhere between, "Come on, Jenny!" and "You said you hadda go potty!" my entire train of thought (along with that of our congregation) went right on out the window. It took us all a minute to regroup.
