Forgot the best part

The greatest thing at the wedding was the Groom’s side of the house thinking that I was an actual minister. I had one legitimate “So, where is your congregation?” and a “How long have you been ordained?” The real answer to the second question was since 1985 because I still have the original diploma from the Church of Gospel Ministries. What started as a joke has kind of turned into the jokes on me.

At one point I found myself consoling the grooms mother as she told me about a wedding where the ceremony started and one of the couples friends stood up to officiate. He got his accreditation from the INTERNET can you believe it? I told her that was where my own credentials now come from but she pretended like I didn’t say a word.
