Longest Sermon Ever

Back in 1937, Rev. A. Earl Lee set a record for preaching the longest sermon ever, preaching continuously for 21 hours. "He ate regular meals, preaching between bites, changed his clothes, and even took a bath while continuing the sermon by talking into a portable microphone."

Bradford Evening Star - June 29, 1937



However, it seems that world's longest sermon has been a hotly contested record. Today the record is up to 53 hours and 11 minutes. That record was set in 2014 by Florida pastor Zach Zehnder. Although it seems that he took some brief breaks for power naps. Is that allowed? Apparently so. In the video below you can watch the last 11 minutes of his sermon — and most of the rest of it is on YouTube if, for some reason, you want to sit through it.

Strange how there's this common, sort of greasy look among preachers who suffer from logorrhea (that's diarrhea of the mouth in case you didn't know - or, in the vernacular, inability to stop spouting sh*t - common among politicians too).

Whoa! I thought Pastor Ken was long winded.

My parents attended a church associated with the Southern Baptist Conference when I lived in California. The joke within our church was that when the pastor said, "... and all good Baptists say ..." during the sermon, our reply was supposed to be "Amen!" but usually we just checked our watches to see if the sermon had reached its allotted time.
