He Lost His Pants (It Is Well!)

Note: The following is a story that one of my Facebook friends posted online. I am not sure how true it is, but I thought it was funny enough to share with you.  The storyteller is the Minister of Music at his church and gives his account of this hilarious worship service. However, I did use some creative license in bringing you another blog posting.

If I had not attended church today, I would have missed one of the funniest things that I have ever witnessed. During communion and accompanying the senior choir on the organ while they sung, "Let Us Break Bread Together," I watched the deacons serve the congregation dressed in black suits and white gloves. The pastor and his associates stood at the front of the sanctuary waiting for the deacons to return while the choir continued its soul-stirring rendition of the traditional hymn.

Once the deacons had served the entire congregation, they lined up two by two near the entrance of the sanctuary and began their walk down the center aisle to return their communion trays. As the spiritual leaders made their way toward the communion table, Deacon Thomas Moore's dark, beltless slacks fell around his ankles. In an effort to lose weight before his third marriage to the much younger and vibrant, Tomeka Simms, Deacon Moore went on a liquid diet. The deacon did manage to pull up his slacks with one hand while holding the communion tray with the other. He displayed his polka dot bikini briefs to the pastor, his associates and to the entire congregation. Yes, he has lost a lot of weight...and his pants!

The members of the large Baptist church somehow maintained their composure and respect during the holy communion - except for a few members. After the giggling pastor had delivered the benediction, I began to play a lively rendition of "It Is Well With My Soul" on the massive organ as the entire church burst into wild laughter. Normally, I play the traditional "after communion hymn" of "Blest Be The Tie That Binds."

That entire service was the CROWNING moment of hilarity in my career as a Minister of Music!

Until next week, keep praising HIS name!
