  • Something funny that happened while preaching: #1 -- I was feeling bad and my wife gave me 2 benadril (sp?). About half way through i began to talk slowly and eventually could not keep my thoughts together. Had to quit and go home and sleep! Everybody got a big kick out of that. #2 -- Was going along speaking very forcefully and when i was at a critical point, i swallowed my gum and got chocked. The lesson: never chew gum when i’m preaching!
