Goober’s Words of Wisdom 4-26-09

gooberToday Pastor talked about Peter’s reinstatement as written about in John chapter 21.  His sermon title was “Preparing Peter for Penetecost.”  Goober, Ricky and Mickey figured that Pastor Gary was pulling a Seasame Street.  So Goober and the boys pulled out most of their toys and began handing them to Pastor Gary. 

Pastor Gary did not understand as Goober handed up his piano, a Patton Tank, a pair of pants, pumpkins, pizza boxes, a picture book, a PC, a present, a Plymouth, a pipe, and his pet Peter Rabbit.  When asked by Pastor Gary, Goober looked at the congregation and said “Pastor’s Sermon is brought to you today by the letter ‘P'”.

Pastor and Goober then add-libbed a five minute alliteration that I wish we had taped.

Pastor Gary managed to get the high points of outlined using mainly ‘P’ words.  Goober managed to ask intelligent again using mainly ‘P’ words.  Ricky and Mickey kept interjecting random ‘P’ words.  Ricky kept handing up props and calling the by some ‘P’ equivalent.

  1. I guess I’ve never mentioned how much I hate alliteration.

    I’m sure it all began in seminary, when so many of my classmates would use it as an outline tool (that and acrostics) that it really burnt me out on them. Which is a shame, ’cause when done right (and sparingly) they can be quite effective.

    I did love the ‘Sesame Street’ shout-out, and anyone who can ad lib an alliterative conversation for five whole minutes is to be applauded. That ain’t easy.

  2. Alliteration and acrostics make up approximately %50 of the sermons I’ve preached, but then I am a children’s pastor and those kind of ‘stunt’ sermons are expected.

    I find it easier to ad-lib aliteratively using hard consonant sounds.
