WHO OWNS THE CHURCH?


My grandson Nate and I went to the Church New Year's day to clean up after our wonderful New Year's Eve party. On the way there he asked, "Granpa, do you own the church?"


I said, "No. I just manage it." He says, "Well, who owns it?"


I tried to tell him that the Sacramento District Church of the Nazarene owned it--or held title to the property. Apparently that wasn't good enough. An hour or so later, while we were busy at church, he asked again, "Granpa, who owns the church."


I thought about telling him again who possesses the title, but he's only five. That wasn't working. So I said, "God owns the church, and I work for him. I'm kind of like his manager of this church." That seemed to satisfy him.
