> 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 man, still focused on the plaque.

> "Pastor McGhee, what is this?" Alex asked.


> "Well, son, itís a memorial to all the men and women who have died in the

> service."


> Soberly, they stood together, staring at the large plaque. Little Alexís

> voice was barely audible when he asked, "Which one, the 9:00 or the 10:30

> service?"


> =======================

> A Sunday school teacher asked her little children, as they were on the way

> to church service, "And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?"


> One bright little girl replied, "Because people are sleeping."
