Another woman

A pastor, who shall we say was “humor impaired,” attended a conference to help encourage and better equip pastors for their ministry.<>

Among the speakers were many well known and dynamic speakers.<>

One such boldly approached the pulpit and, gathering the entire crowd’s attention, said,<>

“The best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman that wasn’t my wife!”<>

The crowd was shocked! He followed up by saying,<>

“And that woman was my mother!”<>

– The crowd burst into laughter and delivered the rest of his talk, which went over quite well.<>

The next week, the pastor decided he’d give this humor thing a try, and use that joke in his sermon.<>

As he surely approached the pulpit that sunny Sunday, he tried to rehearse the joke in his head. It suddenly seemed a bit foggy to him.<>

Getting to the microphone he said loudly,<>

“The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of another woman that was not my wife!”<>

The congregation inhaled half the air in the room.<>

After standing there for almost 10 seconds in the stunned silence, trying to recall the second half of the joke, the pastor finally blurted out, “…and I can’t remember who she was!”<>
