It was Saturday night and the preacher still hadn't been able to think
of a sermon for the next morning. About 9:00 p.m. he finally said to his
wife, "Dear, I think I've come up with the perfect sermon! I'm going to give a
sermon about horseback riding!"
She said, "Don't be silly! You can't give a sermon about horseback
He replied, "Well, it's going to have to do because I've preached on
just about every other subject I can think of."
The next morning as they were driving to church, she said, "I can't
believe that you're insisting on doing this! You know, If you're going
to give that silly sermon on horseback riding, I'm just going to stay in
the car during the service."
He said, "OK, then, suit yourself!", so she stayed in the car.
Entering church before the service, the preacher had a sudden
inspiration and gave a hell-fire and brimstone sermon on SEX that just had the
congregation in awe. As the congregation filed out of the church, some
of he members saw his wife sitting in the car and approached her window.
One of them said, "Wow! you just missed the best sermon your husband
has EVER given!"
She said, "Yeah, right! What does he know about it! He talks big but
he's only tried it twice in his life! "Once before we were married and once
after, and he fell off both times!"
