cannonball Sunday
 n.— «To tell you the truth, I’m amazed that anybody is here this morning. I advertised for weeks that today we were going to talk about giving generously. Stewardship sermons have a way of creating what we call in the business “cannonball Sunday.” That is, you can put a cannon in the front of the church and fire it in any direction, and most likely you are not hitting anybody. That’s what stewardship sermons tend to do.» —“Enough Is Enough” by J. Dale Suggs Torrey Pines Christian Church (La Jolla, California) Feb. 22, 2004. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
