What did you hear?

Some light-hearted humor for after Christmas…

Does someone ever say something to you, but you hear something completely different?

Like, when I was a kid and they sang “hosanna in the highest” I thought they were singing about lasagna in the highest. Hmmm, lasagna in the highest heaven…

So about a week or so ago I asked the Facebook people on my friends list what sort of funny things they thought they heard in church. Here is a selection of some of their comments below, there are more on my FB page if you want to go check them out.

Caution: you may have to read these out loud to hear the humor.

Joy to the world, the Lord has gum (come).

Joy to the world, and let’s have fun, let earth receive her keys (the Lord is come, let earth receive her King).

You are now joined in holy macaroni (holy matrimony).

Is Mary a round young virgin? (Round yon Virgin).

The little Lord Cheez-its (Jesus) asleep on the hay.

Our Father, who is Art (who art) in Heaven, Harold (hallowed) by thy name.

Aw-man! (Amen)

Good King Wenches who lost his socks (Wenceslas looked out on the Feast of Stephen).

So what about you? What have you heard in church that could be added to this list of funny stuff?

I hope and pray that you had a beautiful Christmas – and that as you end this year you look towards a bright New Year!

Yours in Christ,

Pastor Jason
