When Son #3 Grows Up, He wants to be an Astronaut and a Church-Locker

21 Oct


Church planter dad and church planter kid (aka Son #3)

You know your child is a church planter’s kid after this morning’s conversation…

“Mommy, when I grow up, I want to ride in a rocket ship,” says son #3.

“That’s called an astronaut, son #3.” I interject.

“Okay, Mommy, I want to be an astronaut and a church-locker when I grow up.” says son #3.

(Me being VERY puzzled) “What is a church-locker, son #3?” I inquire.

“You know, those men that lock up the church when you’re done.”

Our wonderful church plant congregation, Redeemer Church, will know exactly what he’s talking about! 🙂 Our church is blessed to meet at our local YMCA. Each Sunday when we leave Mr. Lee or Mr. Dennis, both YMCA employees, locks the door behind us. Thanks, Mr. Lee and Mr. Dennis for serving our church so well!

    I love this story! When my sister and I were little, our dad was a church planter pastor and our church met in a Grange Hall (farming town in NJ, believe it or not). One day, my dad asked us if we wanted to go with him to the Grange Hall, so we jumped in the car and went with him on his errand. After he was finished and we were getting ready to leave, my sister started to cry and when Dad asked her what was wrong, she said, “I wanted to go to the Grange Hall, but we just went to the church!” 🙂
