The Church Planter’s Kid

Born 8 days after the very first service of our church plant which started in an un-air conditioned fire station. Because his dad’s a church planter, until he was four we would drive past a fire station and he would yell “church” and when we drove by a steepled church building he would yell “space ship.” Because his dad’s a church planter, the first time we attended a church besides ours on Sunday, he asked where their fire truck was and why their chairs were so long. Because his dad’s a church planter, he likes to hang out in coffee shops and has great bedside manner in hospitals. Because his dad’s a church planter, he doesn’t have as much as many kids in our area, but never complains. Because his dad’s a church planter, he doesn’t know that you shouldn’t wear shorts to church or that you shouldn’t be close friends with people of another race or class.

HE TURNED SIX TODAY and I’m looking forward to seeing what God does in the future with this church planter’s kids. Happy Birthday Jack!!!!!
