Every Sunday pastor John Williams at the West Bethel Church calls the children to come to the front of the sanctuary and sit in a circle while he gives a brief children’s sermon. Last Sunday John was telling the children about the wonders of seeds in God’s green earth, when suddenly the rapt attention of the kids was distracted, the kids all began giggling, and all heads turned toward the left front of the sanctuary. The object of the distraction? Little one-year-old Brandon Michael Hopper came crawling around the end of the pews and across the room to join the rest of the children!
Do you often find yourself absent mindedly doing something really odd — something you really feel stupid about? Last Sunday evening I was talking to daughter Anita on the phone, and she thanked Mona and I for the children’s books we had given Sierra for her 4th birthday. She chuckled and said Dan thanked me for the birthday check I had sent him, but he would have liked it better if I had written his name on the check instead of my other son-in-law Mark’s name!
