Goober’s Words of Wisdom: May 3rd, 2009
This morning, Pastor Gary’s sermon was putting the “Go” back into Gospel. Taking his sermon from the Great Commission of Mark 16:15, Pastor wanted the congregation to understand that Christ’s words still hold true today. Goober, of course, focused on the sermon title.
Goober thought Pastor Gary was going somewhere. Wanting to be prepared for Pastor Gary’s trip, he brought out his tank, his tractor, his VW, and his mini-van. He also brought out his alarm clock. Mickey and Ricky were looking for “All the World” on their map of Iowa.
Pastor Gary was understandably confused about Goober’s collection of toy vehicles and told Goober he did not know where Goober was going with the props. Goober told Pastor Gary that was what he wanted to know, “Where are we going?”. Pastor Gary replied, “Goober, I’m not following you.”
“Of course not Pastor Gary, I’m not driving.”
Pastor Gary shook his head. “No, Goober, why do you have your tank, tractor, toy cars and an alarm clock?” Goober then explained that because he didn’t know what kind of trip Pastor Gary was taking he was prepared for any kind of trip, military exercise, farming, shopping, vacation. Pastor Gary sighed, and wanted to know what the alarm clock was for. Goober explained that the alarm clock was to make sure that everybody got up on time for the trip.
The whole time Pastor Gary and Goober are having this discussion, Ricky and Mickey are calling out city names from the Iowa map.
Goober wanted to know if taking the tank along for spreading the gospel was a good idea because then if people didn’t want to believe Jesus, we could tell them to believe or else. Pastor told Goober that it didn’t work during The Crusades and it wouldn’t work today either.
The boys decided to then GO and listen to Pastor’s sermon.
