    Children's Ministers are attracted to bright colours; feel comfortable in their company; listen to their preambles about school and friends.

    Children’s ministers have a tendency to pick up odd things we find along the way just because they look cool (or would be great in an object lesson LOL) and put them in their pocket. At the end of the day it is amazing what you will find in a Kidz Pastors pocket, melted mini candy bar, Hot Wheels car missing a wheel, a disheveled and lost Happy Meal toy, uniquely shaped rocks, a sparkly pom pom that was our favorite color, or how about a (yes I admit to it) a Ziploc bag with the molted shell of a cicada bug and a small condiment container with a dead June Bug.
