Flip Wilson was a popular comedian several years ago, some of you are old enough to remember him, and some are not.


1. But one of his characters was a Preacher at the "What’s Happening Now Church." In a skit that he did he told about this preacher.


2. He’d yell: "IF THIS CHURCH IS GOING TO SERVE GOD IT’S GOT TO GET DOWN ON ITS KNEES AND CRAWL!!!"


3. And the audience who was being prompted to be the congregation would yell back "Make it crawl preacher, make it crawl!


4. And then he would yell: "AND ONCE THIS CHURCH HAS LEARNED TO CRAWL, IT’S GOT TO GET UP ON ITS FEET AND WALK!!!"


5. And the audience would yell back "Make it walk preacher, make it walk."


6. Then he would say: AND ONCE THIS CHURCH HAS LEARNED TO WALK IT’S GOT BEGIN TO LEARN TO RUN!!!"


7. And they would yell, "Make it run, preacher, make it run!"


8. Then he would say, "AND IN ORDER TO RUN, ITS GOT REACH DEEP DOWN INTO POCKETS AND LEARN TO GIVE!!!"


9. And there would be a pause, and the people would say "Make it crawl preacher, make it crawl."
