That Awkward Time I Made a Circumcision Joke in Church

That Awkward Time I Made a Circumcision Joke in Church October 27, 2015

Recently I was preaching through Joshua 5, where Joshua is commanded to circumcise the Israelites at Gilgal:

At that time the Lord said to Joshua, “Make flint knives and circumcise the Israelites again.” Joshua 5:2

Anytime you preach about circumcision, the guys in the audience get a little squeamish (understandably). Many times the atmosphere can get so tense that you could cut it with a knife (oops, there I go again). Anyways, I thought this was a perfect opportunity to throw out a little church humor. Now in full transparency I received more groans than laughs, but I still thought it was slightly humorous. What do you think?
