One of the privileges of being a pastor is interacting with young people, whether in Catechism sessions, First Communion classes, youth groups, or children's sermons.
The funniest line any of the kids hit me with last week? A Catechism student told me, "You have a good hairline, pastor." The student's brother agreed. The boys are both well-coiffed student-athletes.
That absolutely cracked me up. My response, after I recovered: "I never thought about it. But, thanks." Kids are fun!
