Tony Campolo tells a story of preaching on Good Friday at his church in Philadelphia. He got up to preach to his predominantly black congregation-–and he was "ON"! The folks were encouraging and hepping him along, and he got excited. He could hear some saying, "Help him Jesus!" And then he heard a woman say "Well!" He said, "When you a WELL, it makes your HARMONES bubble!"

He finally finished, sat down, looked at the Sr. Pastor and said, "Top that!" The Sr. smiles and says, "Pay attention, son, cause the old man is gonna do you in!" And Tony says that's just what he did – with one sentence – five words – "IT'S FRIDAY, BUT SUNDAY'S COMIN'! IT'S FRIDAY, BUT SUNDAY'S COMIN'!"
