(Author’s note: Nothing to note. Just good stuff coming!)
by Miles H. Rost
Pastor Tom was always a bit odd, but people didn’t know what to think when they say a pontoon in the front of the church.
“Oh, it’s just there until I go fishing this weekend.”
For the entire week, the pontoon was the talk of the small town. Some called it sacrilege of the church, some called it economical.
The town manager wanted it gone.
“It’ll be gone by Sunday night, ma’am,” Pastor Tom said, smiling.
Sunday morning, nearly the whole town showed up for service. Pastor Tom walked out and smiled broadly.
“You will all be fishers of men…”
He seems like a bit of a troublemaker
We prefer the term “unorthodox”.
A perfectly appropriate prop!
Miles, I love your “punchline.”
If the shoe fits…
An appropriate visual aide.
Oh, lawdy! How clever. Nicely done.
Nice one, Miles. 🙂 The pastor has had a few lessons in marketing, it seems. Brian should have tried that in Jeonju but it would block off the whole street. 🙂
Pastor Brian would have had other ideas. Now if it was outside of the old building in the parking lot, it wouldn’t have blocked anything.
Love the punch line 🙂
A great object lesson there. Great last line.
Thank you. I had a pastor who used to do such things, but less “large and splashy”. But he’d use small things in his sermons.
