Pastor: Hey! Look whoís back! Itís Space Man SPUD! Hi Spud! Hey? Are you OK?
Iím fine. Really I am.
Pastor: What did you do? Crash your rocket?
Pastor: You didnít try and walk on the water again did you? Remember what happened last time?
No. I didnít try THAT again.
Pastor: Did you eat a bad potato?
I have never met a bad potato! I LOVE spuds!
Pastor: Well, you havenít given up on being the first Irish astronaut have you?
Oh no! I still desperately want to be an astronaut Ė the first Irish
man in space!
Pastor: Well, there must be something wrong! Iíve never seen you without your helmet!
I know. I never take my helmet off. Not even in the shower!
Pastor: Eww! Yuck!
But you seeÖ it was Leonnaís lesson yesterday.
Pastor: The one with Jesus on the cross talking to that other man on the cross?
Yes. I went home and sat down with my Bible, and I read that story again.
And then I read it again. And then again.
Pastor: Well, what did you think?
I realized that Jesus died for that thief, and even told him that that
very day, even that thief would be with Jesus in paradise!
Pastor: It was a great story.
It was more than a story, because I am like the thief on the cross next
Yes. For the first time in years, I took off my helmet. I bowed my head,
and asked Jesus to come into my heart and make me His child!
Pastor: You did? Thatís wonderful!
I know! I canít believe that Jesus loved me that much!
Pastor: Oh Spud! Being a Christian is better than being Space Man Spud isnít it?
There is no comparison! But there is just one question.
Pastor: Whatís that?
When we go to heaven to live with Jesus, will we need rocket ships?
Pastor: Sorry, but Jesus will take care of everything! We wonít need rocket ships at all in heaven!
Good! Because my rocket ship mashed.
Pastor: You mean crashed donít you?
No, I mean mashed. Do you remember all those potatoes I stored in
the top bin?
Well, they are all mashed potatoes now. And I need help eating
them all? Any volunteers?
Pastor: Count me out!
Well, Space Man Spud signing off! Iíll see you all next year! God
