So today at church Philip is drawing on his children's bulletin during the sermon. I see that it is a picture of Jesus in a boat on the Sea of Galilee, preaching to the crowds. Philip has drawn some dark blobs near his hands. "What are these, Pip?" I whisper. "Those are rubber balls," he says. "Jesus is juggling."
Hmmm. The rest of us preachers are in real trouble if Jesus has to resort to juggling to keep the congregation's interest.
