It Happened in Church: Stories of Humor from the Pulpit to the Pews
Quiet reflection and prayer aren't the only things that happen at religious services. As preachers and the faithful can tell you, some of life's funniest moments pop up in the least expected place: church! It Happened in Church: Stories of Humor from the Pulpit to the Pews brings together a collection of these most laugh-worthy accounts. From a churchgoer doing the limbo under a velvet rope to get to his pew, to congregation members stumbling blindly back to their seats after a preacher stomped on their glasses (you have to believe in the miracle of healing for it to work!), these stories will both tickle the funny bone and inspire the soul. Gathered from the friends, family, and personal experiences of Patti Webster, a third generation Christian leader, each story is topped off with scripture and reflection. You'll also find comic breaks and anecdotes from your favorite celebrities. As the stories show, humor really does have the power to heal and to teach.--From publisher description.
