This weekend I hosted in Sojourn. (Sojourn = an interactive, more intimate worship venue at Grace that usually includes discussion. Hosting = facilitating the service by giving announcements, introducing speakers, leading into worship, etc.)
Our Senior Pastor was preaching live and asked a question directed to single people. I glanced around and saw couple after couple. The room was quiet. Wanting to be of assistance, I spoke up.
He acknowledged my answer, then said, Oh, but you don’t have to worry about that, since you’re married.
*Serena shaking her head no.
You’re not? He retorted, looking confused.
*Serena shaking her head no violently while her face is turning 10 shades of red.
I wanted to hide. Or melt into a puddle. Or die.
Our pastor was just as mortified as I was. He was incredibly apologetic after the service and asked, Okay, how did I miss that? Honestly, I’m not sure – after all, I’ve been single since being on staff here.
Regardless, it ranks in one of my top 3 (in no particular order) most embarrassing moments. #2 involved being dragged onto the center court at half-time of a Pacers game dressed as a hamburger bun. #3 would be throwing up all over a treadmill while running at the gym.
What are your most embarrassing moments?
