As I was reading through the morning devotional with my girls this morning (we love to use YouthWalk — I highly recommend it!), I came across the phrase “pitching their tents” on a passage we were reading about the Old Testament tabernacle. That brought me immediately back to this “classic” viral video of this poor guy…
I heard recently somewhere that this guy is still around and doing ministry. Can anyone confirm that? Thankfully, he probably has an understanding and playful staff.
Just this year, I had an embarrassingly similar experience. When I was sharing a heartfelt moment for illustration at a Wednesday night rally service, I communicated that I was literally “crying my balls out”… um… OOPS! I meant to say “bawling my eyes out.” It was supposed to be a very serious, tear-inducing moment. It enduced tears all right! Tears of LAUGHTER! Thanks to my staff, who love to remember “great moments” like this, I’ve not been able to live this moment down. 😉
