Pastor and the Choir Director

There  was  a feud between the Pastor and the Choir Director of The Hicksville Southern Baptist Church.

The first hint of trouble came when the Pastor preached on  dedicating yourselves to service” and the Choir Director chose to sing:  “I Shall Not Be Moved.”

Trying to believe it was a coincidence, the  Pastor put the incident behind him.

The next Sunday he preached on  giving.”  Afterwards, the choir squirmed as the director led them in the  hymn: “Jesus Paid It All.”

By this time, the Pastor was losing  his temper.

Sunday Morning attendance swelled as the tension between the two  built.

A large crowd showed up the next week to hear his sermon on “The sins  of Gossiping.”

Would you believe the Choir Director  selected:  I  Love To Tell The Story”?

There was no turning back. The following Sunday the Pastor told the congregation that unless something changed, he was  considering  resignation.

The entire church gasped when the Choir Director led them in:  “Why Not Tonight?”

Truthfully, no one was surprised when the Pastor resigned a week later, explaining that Jesus had led him there and Jesus was leading him  away.

The Choir Director could not  resist: “What A Friend We Have In Jesus.”
