One of my pastoral responsibilities is to change the message of the outdoor sign at the church.
Right now it says: "Shine in '09 for Jesus"
Yes, it's hokey, but I don't have space to say much.
Today, my saying got exposed for what it really is.
My 11 year old daughter said to me:
"What's your next sign going to say Dad? 'Call your friend Ben in '10?'"
