The Pastor Noticed Little Johnny Standing. –


One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Johnny standing in the foyer of the church staring up at a large plaque.

It was covered with names and small flags mounted on either side of it.

The six-year-old had been staring at the plaque for some time,

So the pastor walked up, stood beside the little boy and said quietly,

“Good morning, Johnny.”

“Good morning, Pastor,”

he replied, still focused on the plaque.

“Pastor, what is this?”

The pastor replied, “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 Johnny’s voice, barely audible and trembling with fear asked,

“Which service, the 8:00 or the 9:30?”
