Conflicts are not uncommon, but when the preacher and song leader get into it, stand aside.

One week, the preacher preached on commitment, and how we should move forward into doing service for others. After this sermon, the song leader led the congregation in singing "I Shall Not Be Moved."

The next Sunday, the preacher preached on giving and how we should gladly give to the work of the Lord. The song leader then led the song, "Jesus Paid It All."

The next Sunday, the preacher preached on gossiping and how we should watch our tongues. The hymn was "I Love To Tell The Story."

The preacher became disgusted over the situation and, the next Sunday, he told the congregation he was considering resigning. The congregation then sang "Oh, Why Not Tonight."

When the preacher resigned the next week, he told the church that Jesus had led him there and Jesus was taking him away. The song leader then sang "What a Friend We Have in Jesus."
