Unintended Laughter In Worship

Folks laughed in worship this morning but it wasn't because I had told a particularly hilarious joke (Note to reader: They never laugh at my jokes). Instead, it happened during sharing joys and concerns for prayer. Each Sunday, prayer request cards are passed forward to be shared with the congregation. A slip of my tongue accidently rephrased one request as follows:
For our good friends in San Diego who just had a baby girl, Morgan, who was born 3 months pregnant....

The correct word was, of course, "premature." I'm sure that some people are still laughing. I know I am!
