Goober’s Words of Wisdom: 3-15-09
Pastor continued his sermon series on the miracles of Jesus. This week Pastor Gary choose the healing of the ten lepers as told in Luke 17:11-19. Goober free-associated this to coincide with the upcoming holiday.
Goober assumed that March 17th was the day that Jesus healed the ten leper-cons. He, Ricky, and Mickey started off by throwing out Leper-con Day candy. The popped up wearing green derbys, green bow-ties, and speaking in the worst Leper-con accents heard this side of the Atlantic.
Pastor Gary tried his best to reign in the antics, but every time he mentioned that leperosy was a disease, Goober agreed with him. “Yes, Pastor Gary, Leper-see is when clovers grow out of your head. Saint Patrick cured all the Leper-cons in Ireland in honor of Jesus’ healing of the ten Leper-cons.
After much explaining Pastor was able to convince Goober that the lepers Jesus healed had nothing to do with St. Patrick, Ireland or March 17th.
