Was it in the middle of summer? I'm not really sure. In any case an announcement was made at church (Village Baptist) one Sunday morning. There was going to be a short informational meeting about the greased turkey study tour. Greased turkey? A study tour? Hmmmm.... A study of greased turkeys??? Did I hear that right? It seemed that other people were asking the same question.
As it turned out, the meeting was about the GREECE TURKEY STUDY TOUR that was being offered through Western Seminary. The tour was a Bible study tour of the missionary journeys of the apostle Paul.
The misheard tour name was subject of much laughter at the meeting - not to mention a few fowl jokes ..... And although Pastor John tried to correct us ..... for some of us it was already to late, and it will always be known to us as the GREASED TURKEY TOUR!
