Preacher's kids!

It's still fairly early days in my process of candidating as a Methodist minister, as although the mountain of forms has been signed of and submitted to the church's Education for Ministry and Mission Unit, there is still my Essay on Methodism to submit, not to mention the battery of screening that lies ahead.

But my son is already starting to show early signs of becoming a Preacher's Kid!

The other day he was telling me a joke - you know, one of those groaners that 9 year-old's love, which also seem to be obligatory as sermon illustrations - and once he had finished and the rest of us had managed to force some laughter, he said to me: "Dad! I too can become a minister - I've already got a repertoire of bad jokes for my sermons!"

You gotta love them...
