Doing time

The story tonight at Vacation Bible School was about Paul and the time he spent imprisoned. The pastor loves to draw kids into the story so he asks the "Sophomore class" -- 1st and 2nd graders-- if any of them have ever been in prison.

One of them answered yes -- and then the second-grader remembered he hadn't been to the Big House after all. "It was some place else." We didn't ask for an explanation.

At this point another kid remembered he had a plan on how to escape if he ever ended up behind bars. "First you ask the guard guy to come very close to you ..."

Then a third child had to tell the pastor a secret -- hopefully not about jail time, but the pastor wasn't revealing anything.

I'm not sure Paul ever made it out of prison during story time.
