Last Sunday, during my children's sermon, this occurred:
Me: "So what happens this week?"
Me: "What happens before Easter"
Kids: (After some prodding and suggestions). "Jesus dies."
There were several starts and stops here, as we talked about people being mad a Jesus because of what he said, that we killed Jesus, with one boy quickly saying, "Not me." We've all done or seen children's sermons. It's the homelic equivalant to riding a wild horse. You just hang on...
But we eventually got here:
Me: "So what did Jesus say?"
Kids: "To love each other."
Me: "And people killed Jesus because of what he said."
Kids: "That's stupid."
Out of the mouths of the little one. Here's to our journey of stupidity over the next three holy days. And to a God who loves us anyway.
