Elton Trueblood says one of the worst true stories he knows is about a preacher who stood on Laymen's Sunday, the first Sunday in October, and preached on lay ministry. He was stirring and so persuasive that at the end, when he said, "Will any men who are willing to dedicate themselves to the lay ministry come forward?" a hundred men responded. Someone standing close to the Pastor heard him mutter, "Oh my, what am I going to do with a hundred ushers?" That pastor had missed the point of his own sermon.
