My dear Father-in law likes to tell a story as he speaks on the topic of leadership. I was thankful he reminded me of this funny story.
Our oldest daughter (who was around 6 at the time) was in Sunday School class (NEGA).
The lesson that day focused on deacons… what is the role of the deacon… what is it to be a servant.
The teacher opened the lesson with an obvious question,
“Can anyone tell me what a deacon is?”
She raises her sweet hand (you know those minister’s kids… they are know it alls) and says,
“Yes. Deacons were angels who disobeyed God and were put in Hell…” HA!
