Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Who broke the wall?

the scene as found in The Brick Testament
A pastor asked a Sunday school children, "Who broke down the wall of Jericho?" A boy answered, "Not me, sir!" Upset, the pastor asked the teacher, "Is this typical?" She replied, "I believe this boy is honest, and I really don't think he did it."

The pastor went to on of the deacons. "I've known the boy and the teacher for years," said the deacon, "and neither of them would do such a thing." Aghast, the pastor went to the chairman of the church board. "Pastor," said the chairman, "let's not make an issue of of this. Let's just pay for the damage and charge it to the upkeep."

Note: Speaking of breaking down walls, Dancing on the Head of a Pin carries and update on an earlier story. The Rev. James Tramel, the convicted murderer ordained to the priesthood while in prison, was just given parole.
