Joash was part of the sermon on Sunday. He slept through the whole thing. Our pastor picked him up from us, brought him to the front of church and talked about how a baby is full of potential. We don't know what Joash is going to be like when he grows up. We don't know who he will meet or where he will go. He has the potential to do any number of wonderful and amazing things. The pastor then connected this to our new life in Christ as Christians. We too are full of potential to do amazing things for God's Kingdom. It was a beautiful thought that warmed my heart.
The funny part for us was one of the things our pastor choose to say about Joash is that he could be a great hockey player and be a star for the Toronto Maple Leafs and help them win some games. When he said that, Wilbert and I just looked at each other and laughed. Sorry Joash, but I don't think being a great hockey star is in your gene pool. You have two very non-athletic parents. I think I would go for something in music if I were you.
