Army Of The Lord

One of our church members, who is a stationed at Ft. Bliss, related the following story to me today:

A friend was in front of me coming out of the church building one day, and the preacher was standing at the door as he always is to shake hands. He grabbed my friend by the hand and pulled him aside. The preacher said to him, “You need to join the Army of the Lord!” My friend replied, “I’m already in the Army of the Lord, preacher! The preacher questioned him by asking, “How come I don’t see you except at Christmas and Easter?”

He whispered back, “I’m in the Secret Service.”

Now I know where some of our members are that are not in church services except on special occasions. 🙂
