Sermon Illustrations

Someone was discussing with his preacher the advisability of writing down the names of the bride and groom in his notes. He had heard about a priest who was too proud to do that, and ended up calling a groom by the wrong name. The preacher said, "You think that’s bad? I began a ceremony and thought: Is his name James or John? I knew I would have to ask him. So I said, ’Is your name James or John?’" "James," the groom said. The bride nudged him and said, "Your name is John."
