Oh my! So admire folks who can rhyme and tell a story too. Wasn't expecting that twist in the last line! Nicely done!
He certainly told that congregation!
Gossip and backbiting are the bane of so many fellowships.
The storyline is excellent but the actual construction would improve with a little 'leveling out.'
Great story poem! (Probably my gossiping ladies were among the congregation.)
I feel a touch of sadness at the temporary repentance of the gossips who found another preacher, so they could continue their smallmindedness.
I enjoyed this fun rhyme. That's the answer get yourself a new preacher!
Really GOOD preaching in this rhyme! And it is so true and sad that churches will bring in preachers that pacify them!

Just wondering though: why all the stories and poems seem to make it gossiping "ladies" ???? LOL I think men are just as guilty, listen to some of their coffee clutch talk! LOL
