In a large Florida City, a pastor developed quite a reputation for his sermons; so much so that everyone in the community came every Sunday. Unfortunately, one weekend one of the church members had to miss church but he didn't want to miss the pastor's sermon. So he hired a techie to sit in the congregation and tape the sermon so he could listen to it when he returned. Other congregants saw what was going on and they also decided to hire techies to tape the sermon so they could play golf instead of going to church. Within a few weeks there were 500 techies sitting in church taping the pastor. The pastor got wise to this. The following Sunday he, too, hired a techie to play his prerecorded sermon to the 500 techies in the pews who dutifully recorded his words on their machines. And so, boys and girls, this was the beginning of a whole new movement in the church called - are you ready for this? - artificial insermonation.
