Have you met the members of my congregation?

I belong to the greatest church in the world.  We have an eclectic group of members and leaders. You would love them.  Here are some of their names….

First off, our pastor is Rev. Turner Byrne.

The deacons are Rod(ney) N. Staff, Moe Love, Noah D. Word, and Ruffin Tumble.

The Sunday School teachers are I. M. Humble, Chester Drawers, Hal E. Looyah, and Shuck D. Corn.

The church council includes I. M. Wright, R. U. Ready, H. Evan Sent, and Joiner R. Flock.

Other members include I. M. Pious, Phil N. Goode, Al B. Gone, Givmore Lute, Gitrite R. Getleft, Red E. R. Knott, Diddy Saythat, R. E. Pent, O. Y. Knott, Luke Warm, Phil Upcup, Willie Makeit, Will B. Brief, May B. Sew, I. M. Pasteur, and (retired) Pastor D. Saster.

The trustees are Roland N. D’Isles, Tryde Datt, and Brother Lee Love.

We had a family try to join our church a couple of Sundays ago. Their names were Steve and Mary Smith, sons Daniel and Joshua, and daughters Katherine and Jennifer.

We rejected them.

With names that strange, we weren’t sure we could trust them.

  1. Joe,
    That was wonderful! I laughed all the way through it!! I hope that is what you wanted from your readers. How you came up with all those names is amazing, but then I realize how long you have been in ministry so it probably wasn’t that difficult for you.

    I hope you and Bertha are staying well during this pandemic. Take care!!
