*Two-minute Warning: The preacher's wife looking at her watch in full view of the pastor.

*Quarterback Sneak: Sunday School teachers entering the building five minutes after classes began.

*Staying in the Pocket - What happens to a lot of money that should be given to the Lord's work.

*Two-minute Warning - The point at which you realize the sermon is almost over and begin to gather up your children and belongings.
