This just in from the Lake Wobegon Genome Project

Yesterday morning, I was sitting in the church office, proofreading the Easter bulletin, when a bunch of Sunday schoolers trooped by on their way to the sanctuary. They were going to practice processing, waving palms and singing "All Glory, Laud and Honor." All of a sudden, I was given a glimpse of Lutheran DNA in action when one of the little sprouts expressed an earnest concern to his/her teacher:
I don't know if I can do this.
They want me to sing and smile at the same time.


Had a difficult time not anointing the bulletin proof with a mouthful of coffee.

Blessed Holy Week, everyone!

LOL.

It's not just the post.

It's the title.

Thanks for a laugh in this week when I could use one.

Pax, C.

Sometimes it still seems difficult to smile and sing but Palm Sunday is a great time to practice.
