The Pastor and the Choir Conductor

Today the sermon was not preached by the Pastor. One of the Church leaders, sister Judy Wong shared on the topic "Communication Breakdown Spells Disaster".

She shared the first "communication" problem between the pastor and the choir conductor. I believe it is more of a make-up humour. I am amazed how the hymns fit in just right. Here it is -

When the pastor and choir director get into communication problem, here is what happens:

One week our pastor decided to press his position by preaching on commitment, and how we should dedicate ourselves to service.

That Sunday, the choir director led the choir in singing, 'I Shall Not Be Moved.'

The next Sunday, the pastor preached on giving and how we should gladly give to the work of the Lord.

The choir director then led the song, 'Jesus Paid It All. '

The next Sunday, the pastor preached on gossiping and how we should watch our tongues.

The hymn was 'I Love To Tell The Story. '

The pastor became disgusted over the situation, and the next Sunday he told the congregation he was considering resigning.

The choir then sang 'Oh, Why Not Tonight.'

After the pastor resigned the next week, he preached his last sermon at the church telling the congregation that Jesus had led him there and Jesus was taking him away.

The choir then sang, 'What A Friend We Have in Jesus.
