I Pity the Fool
As many of you have already experienced, today is April Fool’s Day. And luckily for this pastor, it fell on a Sunday. My associate pastor of students decided to take advantage of this happenstance, using it as an opportunity to play a practical joke on the entire church body during the Sunday morning worship service.
During our welcome time he got up to make an announcement. “It is a joyous time this Easter season, and I want everyone to know today on this Palm Sunday that Becky and I are expecting.”
The entire church clapped and cheered. I looked at my wife, “Wow, he didn’t even tell me that he and his wife were going to have their first kid.”
I think some began to shed a tear of joy.
He then decided to pull the punch line. “We’re expecting you all to have a fun April Fool’s Day!”
He had us all.
