“THEY DIED IN THE SERVICE?”
One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Johnny was staring up at the large plaque that hung in the foyer of the church.
The seven-year-old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside the boy, and said quietly,
“Good morning son.”
“Good morning pastor” replied the young man, focused on the plaque.
“Sir, what is this?” Johnny asked.
“Well son, these are all the people who have died in the service,” replied the pastor.
Soberly, they stood together, staring at the large plaque.
Little Johnny’s voice barely broke the silence when he asked quietly, “Which one sir,
the 8:30 or the 10:30 service?”
