Early or Late?
One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex 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 Alex.””
““Good morning pastor”” replied the young lad, focused on the plaque. ““Pastor McGhee, what is this?”” Alex asked.
““Well son, these are all the men who have died in the Service,”” replied the pastor.
Soberly, they stood together, staring at the large plaque. Little Alex’’s voice barely broke the silence when he asked quietly, ““Which one, the 9:00 or the 10:30 service?””
