Goober’s Words of Wisdom 2-1-09
This morning, Pastor Gary guest filled a pulpit in Newton, IA. Pastor Ken filled in for him and asked Goober to steer him back on course if he strayed to far from the order of service. Goober only had to bring him back to the published order once.
Pastor Ken’s sermon was from John 2:1-11, the miracle of turning the water into wine. Goober and Ricky had to, as always, help with the sermon illustration. Goober figured he could help by turning water into wine on his own. Mickey on the other hand spent the entire time “whining” over the water.
Goober and Ricky got out their trusty garden hose, a pitcher and food coloring. Their plan was to put water in the pitcher and dump purple food coloring into the this making “wine”. Pastor Ken managed to convince them that was not how Jesus did it. Mickey continued to “whine”.
Goober decided in the end that if Jesus was going to use miracles to make something to drink, that he’d prefer Cherry Coke over wine. Ricky and Goober got into fight over which would be better, Cherry Coke or Mr. Pibb.
