“Good morning Pastor,” he replied, still focused on the plaque. “Pastor, what is this?” he asked.
The pastor said, “Well, son, it’s a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service.”
Soberly, they just stood together, staring at the large plaque. Finally, little Patrick’s voice, barely audible and trembling with fear, asked, “Which service, the 8:30 or the 10:45?”
This joke wasn’t so funny during my years of being a pastor. But with new perspective, I thought I would share it with you.
