Out of the Mouths of Babes #4

I submitted this one to The Lutheran Witness not long ago, and they published it...

Faith was the only child who came forward for one particular children's message. I wanted to talk about Baptism, and directed her attention to the font.

"Faith, what is this called?" I asked, pointing to the baptismal font. She shrugged her shoulders.

"It's a font. Let me hear you say 'font,'" I requested. Faith dutifully responded, "Font."

"And what goes on over here?" I asked.

Without missing a beat, she declared, "A lid!"
