Since we had as many people submit stories for general worship as Easter/Christmas, we decided to declare two winners, one in each category – General and Christmas/Easter.
Jonathan Owens from Copperas Cove, Texas, won the General category and you can watch his story on video below.
Patsy Green from St. Clair, Missouri, won the Christmas/Easter category. Here is her story:
Several years ago our choir was performing a Christmas cantata that required them to go back to the beginning of the book and sing the first song again for the finale. They were doing a wonderful job, and at the appointed time, all of the choir turned their pages back to the beginning of the book to sing the first song again. But, a little boy in the audience, anxious to get to the food and fellowship (presents!) scheduled for after the cantata, saw the choir turn their pages back to the beginning of their books, said in a most audible voice, “Oh no! They’re starting over!”
Congratulations to them both!
Thanks to all who submitted a story. Of course, you can always share a embarrassing/funny story with us at any time. It’s good to learn to laugh at ourselves when our plans do not go as expected — this helps point us to the One whose plans never fail.
