Verse – Yawn

Mr. Bean, Rowan Atkinson

Mr. Bean, Rowan Atkinson

My preaching was very specific,
I was sure my words were terrific,
But the folks in the pew
Had a much different view:
“Your sermons were all soporific.”

ANECDOTE FROM GORDON:

While preaching a sermon I thought was at least passable, a worshiper with dementia let out an audible “Ho-Hum” during what was meant to be a pregnant pause. It has the makings of a Mr. Bean skit.
