There was a feud between the Pastor and the Choir Director of the Hicksville Baptist Church. It seems 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”
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 Sin of Gossiping.” Would you believe that 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 congregation gasped as 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 was leading him away.
The choir director could not resist: “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.”
