2. EMOTIONAL CONNECTION
We're in a series that I am calling "Home Movies". We are focusing in on the people in our lives that matter most. Last week we talked about men. What Men Wish That Women Understood About Us. Well, this week guys, I'm afraid it's pay back time. The ladies get their turn. I've asked my wife, Chris, to help me with the message today. This is really dangerous guys.
Chris Shook: Well, Kerry, I have a little surprise for you. This week I got all the pastor's wives together to talk about some of the ways that you guys are clueless. I was fortunate enough to get it all on video so that we could share your faults with 8,000 people this morning.
Pastor Kerry: I was afraid of something like this. So, okay, roll it.
Chris: You are going to like it.
Pastor Kerry: Let's see what it is.
VIDEO OF PASTORS' WIVES TALKING ABOUT THEIR HUSBANDS
Pastor Kerry: That was great, Chris, but I want you to know that I got wind of that. I found out about that, so I just happened to call all the pastors together sometime during the week. Just to set everyone straight on what a women is really like. Just watch this.
VIDEO OF PASTORS TALKING ABOUT THEIR WIVES
Pastor Kerry: That sets the record straight right there. I hope you can tell that we pastors were kidding around having a great time, but I am afraid the ladies were pretty serious on their video, weren't they?
Chris: Well, I am here today to stand up for women. You know, I heard a story about three fishermen and they were out together and they came upon a mermaid and the mermaid said that she would grant everyone of them whatever they wished for. And, so, the guys said great. So, the first fisherman said, "I wish that you would double my I.Q." The mermaid said, "Okay." And right away he started reciting Shakespeare. Well, the second fisherman said, "I wish that you would triple my I.Q." And, the mermaid said, "You got it." And instantly he started doing math problems that he didn't even know existed. Well, she came to the third fisherman and he said, "You know, I am pretty impressed with my buddies here. I tell you what. Mermaid, I want you to quadruple my I.Q." And she said, "hold it. You don't even know what you are asking for. This will totally change your life." He said, "No, I mean it. Quadruple my I.Q. Go ahead, have at it." And she turned him into a woman.
