One of our youth pastors was leaving to go to another church on the same day my wife and I returned from a mission trip to France to encourage our missionaries there. As we closed the service, I brought my wife on the stage on live tv and illustrated how French churches "greet one another with a holy kiss" as they come to church and as they leave. We kissed each other on the side of the face and the people smiled and said, "Awwwww." Then, I closed the service by having our youth pastor and his wife stand at the front of the church for our people to come by and give them a farewell hug. What I meant to say was, "Come through the line and give them more than a hug, but be like the French churches and give them a holy kiss farewell!"

What I said was totally different and very embarrassing. I shockingly said on live tv, "Now, church family, our youth pastor and his wife are at the front. Why don’t you come by and give them a FRENCH KISS!"

I could have died.
