Following Jesus ... and the Huskers

Before I begin this story, I have to explain that Jay owns a Nebraska Cornhuskers hat shaped like a giant ear of corn. It looks just like this, although Jay never looks this painfully serious when he's wearing it:




Now for the story. The theme at WCK's Sunday School class this week was "Following Jesus." They had a little worksheet showing pictures of various people who were following Jesus. There was Martin Luther King, Jr., Kateri Tekakwitha, the first Native American to be declared blessed by the Catholic church, and Archbishop Oscar Romero, the martyred bishop of El Salvador. (Note: I am copying these descriptions right off of the worksheet, because the only one of these people I've ever heard of is Martin Luther King, Jr.)

In the fourth space, the kids were to draw their own picture of someone following Jesus. WCK drew a little person with a big, pointy head. Was it the pope? An angel? Her own rendering of the martyred bishop of El Salvador?

"It's Daddy wearing his corn hat," she explained.

I don't care what expression one has on his face, no one looks serious wearing a corn hat! Ridiculous, yes! Serious, not so much.
