(It is rare when a church joke catches me off guard and causes me to laugh out loud. The joke below did just that. I don’t know where it originated from, but I read it on a list serve I subscribe to and loved it. Thus, I’m sharing it with you in hopes that the end result is that your day is brightened as well!)

The Joke:

One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of the church staring up at a large plaque. It was covered with names and small American 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 Alex.”

“Good morning Pastor,” Alex replied, still focused on the plaque. “Pastor, what is this?”

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 Alex’s voice, barely audible and trembling with fear asked, “Which service, the 8:30 or the 10:30?”
