Ever started laughing in Church and not stop.

Laughed so hard you snorted and wet your pants?

All except the wet your pants part.... Yes.

My pastor is ALWAYS saying something to make me laugh.... A couple of times I've had to get up and walk out into the fellowship hall to regain my composure so that I could listen to the rest of his sermon.

We used to have a Bible study on Tuesday mornings. One of the meetings I was getting ready to teach. One point I was going to make was about jesting. As I got ready to teach I began to lose control.

I began laughing. Pretty soon everyone was laughing! And I mean hard! One of the Elders ran into another room trying to get a grip. We heard him laughing outrageously loud.

After a while we began to settle down. As soon as I opened my mouth to speak it hit all over again. This time it was so hard I couldn't take it! I closed my Bible and ran for the door. In the Car driving home I liked to never stopped laughing.

It may be the first time a Church meeting was ever cancelled because of uncontrolable laughter. I believe it was the Lord showing us HIS JOY versus the joy of the world.

I would like to experience that again as wild as it was!

I call that the shoulder shakes and I've had them many, many times!

Can't say that I've ever snorted or wet my pants though.

Steadfast has told this story before and it's a hoot!

Story by Steadfast:
Kind of like the Youth Camp I preached a few years ago in a super duper ultra conservative environment when the 55 (or so) year old 'Principle' of the camp got up right before I preached and was giving them the 'campground conduct code'. He said, (and, yes, I'm serious) "We're going to respect the House of God by utilizing a proper dress code to these night services. For example, I want every girl in the building wearing thongs to stand up right now...."

Obviously he meant what we call 'flip flops' but he insisted one progressing in that vein by saying, "Come on now, I've been looking closely at some of you and there are more thongs still sitting in those pews!"

My youngest son, who was sitting beside me on the front row, said, "Oh Lord, Dad! What in the world is he doing!" I said, "Son, he's talking about 'flip flops'." My son - MUCH younger at the time - leaned down like he was picking up his Bible and said, "They aren't wearing flip flops, Dad!"

Ironically, just as I wanted to kill my son, the man in the pulpit said, "There will be NO thongs in the evening services! If you have to wear thongs then stop on your way in, pull them off and leave them in a pile at the front door!"

Yep, it was pretty much over at that very moment.
