In a church far, far away…

Never invest in any idea you can’t illustrate with a crayon. 

   ~ Peter Lynch
 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of his Son, how much more, since we have been reconciled, will we be saved by his life?
~ Romans 5:10
The issue was a simple one
we teachers did agree.
When Communion Sunday came
we wanted to partake.
We brought our honest query
our superior just said no.
When Communion Sunday came,
our hearts began to ache.
We approached it once again,
the rules she read right back
“They must all be baptized.”
New action we must take.
We checked with all the parents,
our kids had all been doused,
we brought back our results with joy,
“Oh there must be some mistake.”
Back and forth and forth and back
the arguments ensued
After oh so many times
we could now partake!
Once a month the kids could sit
amongst their families,
take communion, stay a while.
With joy now did we shake!
The years have passed, 
the teachers changed
Each month the kids are there.
Adversarial no more,
Friends through answered prayer.
