50th Birthday for Your Pastor

FBC StaffKnowing that my good friend and Sr. Pastor’s birthday was coming up this Friday…I woke up with a renewed spirit to play birthday pranks. So after calling the local Funeral Home and trying to borrow a hearse, I was told that it was a great idea, but sadly they had gotten some bad feedback from a similar event a few years back, so no dice. That is understandable since there are many, including well intentioned believers that feel that a hearse should only be used for official business. However, given my genetic make-up, coming from a long line of laughers and since I walk around 22 hours of the day with my foot in my mouth, I was not discouraged. Briefly toying with the possibility of calling in a heart-attack for the old man and seeing what would happen when Paramedics rushed into the office, this idea was thwarted with the thought of some sort of fine and my lack of funds. 🙂 I have been at my current church for over 6 years and most will understand that this is expected. (See April Fools announcement of upcoming baby to our perinnially childless Worship Pastor and his wife which was met with a standing ovation!) So I decided just to twitter out a message that mentioned that our pastor fell and broke his hip. After only a few hours, I had recieved numerous phone calls and 60+ messages asking what was up with Dr. Sam. Oh, the beauty of technology. I have only had one person hang up on me so this is working better than expected. I love my job and you are only 50 once…so there you go. Please read this a road map of what not to do and just join with me a smile. I will post additional results soon. Much love and keep laughing. Dustin

  1. Wow, you're messed up. However, what a great prank! Seriously, I spent a good 7 minutes in prayer for Dr. Sam on my lunch break.

    That is just awesome! Once again, my hat is off to you.
