  1. I remember when a rather young pastor was trying to illustrate a sermon with a with a tennis ball and racket he hit the ball with the racket with the ball hitting an elderly lady in the forhead.Wow I wonder who that Pastor was?

  2. I have a neat brochure called “The Ideal Pastor.” I don’t know who wrote it but it is great:
    “After hundres of years, a model preacher has been found to suit everyone. He preaches
    exactly 20 minutes and then sits down. He condems sin, but never hurts anyone’s feelings.
    He works from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. in every type of work, from preacing to custodial service.
    He makes $60 dollars a week, wears good clothes, buys good books regularly, has a nice
    family, drives a good car, and gives $30 a week to the church. He also stands ready to contribute
    to every good work that comes along. He is 25 years old and has been in the ministry for 30 years.
    He is tall and short, thin and heavyset in addition to being handsome. He has one brown eye
    and one blue, hair is parted in the middle, left side dark and straight, right side brown and wavy.
    He has a burning desire to work with teenagers, and spends all of his time with older folks.
    He smiles all the time with a straight face, because he has a sense of humor that keeps him
    seriously dedicated to his work. He makes 15 calls a day on church members, spends all his
    time evangelizing the unchurched and is never out of the office.”

    How about your pastor? Do you pray for him? Do you make an effort to help him? After all,
    God gave your church a pastor to equip the saints (including you) for the ministry. The
    ministry is ours — not just his. We are trained by him to assist him in this great work of the
    ministry. So be gentle, be considerate, and when there is a need, be sure to let him know.
    Don’t just expect him to know.

    As a new pastor, I always enjoy my “children’s sermon,” and I hope the kids enjoy it as well. I KNOW the congregation enjoys some of their responses.

    My most memorable experience came one morning when I was talking to them about the feeding of the 5000. I started by showing them five biscuits and three fish sticks and suggested we try to feed the whole congregation with them after church.

    Then, I explained that Jesus not only fed a group the size of our congregation, but fed 5000 people with this amount of food. They were impressed, although one of them commented that they must have been awfully small pieces.

    Then I mentioned that not only did they feed the 5000, but afterwards they went around and collected the remaining food into large baskets!

    I then asked them what that would be called, expecting the word miracle. But as soon as the question was out of my mouth, one of the most attentive kids knew the answer and shouted it out ….

    I know, LEFTOVERS.

    The congregation didn’t stop laughing for 10 minutes, and I had a great deal of trouble preaching a “serious” sermon that Sunday.

  4. Several years ago my wife and I were living in Siler City, NC. I was in the F.A.I.T.H. Sunday School outreach in our church. My pastor and I had been witnessing to a hispanic lady for several weeks. We went to visit her one night. We knocked on the door, but her husband came to the door instead. She was taking a shower. We asked her husband if we could talk with him. He agreed. As my pastor explained salvation in Christ to the husband, we could tell the Holy Spirit was working on him. He accepted Jesus Christ that evening on his front porch. When my pastor was done, he asked the husband, if you died tonight where would you go? The husband said I would go to heaven. My pastor asked, how do you know? The husband looked at my pastor and said Because you told me just 5 minutes ago!!!!
