Brad mentioned he had to run as soon as service was over in the Haven yesterday to the main worship center for a prayer thing. Okay. I headed out to pick up the girls from class and nursery. By the time we made it back to the Haven, Brad had returned and was now in possession of a sword. Not the foam kind we like to sword fight around the house with, but a real sword. Ummm, uncomfortable. Kids of various sizes and ages gathered around as Brad and Trevor checked it out. My protective mommy mode kicked in, and I watched every kid surrounding them like a hawk.
Turns out they were a gift from past and present Board members for Pastor Appreciation/KoK’s Year of Jubilee. The swords represent the Sword of the Spirit found in Ephesians 6. (Pretty cool, but I still told Brad I’d rather he keep it at work.)
Here are a couple of pictures Brad emailed me earlier (thankfully, for the safety of my son, it has it’s cover on in all of these photos):
Not sure if it will work or not for those who don’t “like” them on Facebook, but here is a link to several more pictures: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.527423637286679.127161.196872390341807&type=1
