Misheard in the sermon

Warning: this is a theology nerd joke.

We are blessed with pastors at our church, both in quality and abundance. On Sundays there’s often a line-up of three behind whichever pastor is preaching. In other words, there are four of us: Carl, Melinda, Bart, and me.

Sometimes, certain members of the line-up get a little giggly. Yes, I am that certain member.

This misheard line of Melinda’s sermon almost sent me over the edge on Sunday:

Here’s what I heard: “Karl Barth, Erica and I do not have all the answers.”

Here’s what the manuscript said: “Carl, Bart, Erica and I do not have all the answers.”

Yes, I work at a church with Karl Barth. Sort of.

    This wouldn’t be nearly as funny if you were Lutheran. But since you’re reformed, it’s hysterical. ;-)

    Oh, really? I’ve never noticed.
