Out of the Mouths of Babes #2

At preschool chapel last Thursday, I explained to the children what an "altar" is. We sat in front of the small wooden altar in the preschool room, and I said, "This is the place where we come to think about God and his love for us, and we say back to him how much we love him"...and so forth, trying to put it on their level. I had them repeat the word a few times so they could get used to saying it and hearing it..."Altar." Next, we sang a few songs and said a prayer. Finally, I asked the children, "Okay, now, what was this piece of furniture called again?" From the back row, a little boy said, "Walter!"
