DURING A RECENT Sunday morning service, the pastor noticed little Alex staring-up at the large plaque that hung in the foyer of the church.
The plaque was covered with names, and small Australian flags were mounted on either side of it.
The nine-year-old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside him 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, it’s a memorial to all the men and women who have died in the service.”
Soberly, they stood together, staring at the large plaque.
Little Alex’s voice was barely audible when he finally managed to ask: “Which one, the 9 o’clock or 10:30 service?”
