CHURCH CHUCKLES: A little boy went to church with his father & noticed that they had placed a new flag at the front of the church. It was white and had gold stars on it. The little boy asked his father what the flag meant. His father replied that each one of those gold stood for someone who died in the service. The boy thought about that for a bit, then asked, “Did they die in the 9:00 or the10:30 service?
