I was working in an elementary room in our church one Sunday when I noticed a second grade boy standing up in the back row of kids. All of the other children were sitting quietly, listening to the teacher in the front of the room.
I walked up to him and said, “Hey buddy, I need you to have a seat with everyone else.”
He eyed the crowd, stone-faced with his arms crossed. “Can’t,” he said. “I’m working security.”
Oh, of course, I thought. I must have missed his badge. I felt much safer knowing I had a CIA-trained seven-year-old patrolling the mean streets of children’s church.
