Acccording to Dim Lamp’s Dictionary of Church History Words, flangiprop refers to those moments in church history, which are unpredictable, humorous, serendipitous, or embarrassing.

   Example one: When some prominent personage, like the President of the Lutheran World Federation, in his inaugural sermon meant to say: “and the devil’s fiery darts…” but blurted out instead: “and the devil’s diary farts…”

   Example two: At an Easter Sunday festival Holy Communion Service when the pastor raises her arms for the closing benediction and her alb’s left sleeve catches on fire, and fortunately there are flowers on the altar, so she grabs the vase and pours the water from it onto her burning alb sleeve.

   Example three: During a wedding service on a very hot summer’s day, the best man, who was six feet, six inches tall faints and knocks over the paschal candle on his descent.
