Porthos and Athos the Exegetes

Family worship time and Pilgrim Dad leads the children in a reading-cum-artistic interpretation of the Fall of Man.

They are having a right good time drawing the snake and the fruit and the Man and the Woman (complete with censorship blocks over vital anatomical bits).

After they are done, Pilgrim Dad asks them what they think God is teaching us.

Without hesitation, Porthos says, “Fruits are bad for you.” We dissolve in chuckles, during which time he surmises his answer was not quite the authoritative interpretation.

“Don’t listen to talking snakes?” he ventures in all sincerity.

By this time, Pilgrim Dad and I are in fits. Athos decides to have a go as well and calls out, “Don’t listen to your wife!”

Let’s just say my boys don’t appear as yet to have bright prospects as men of the cloth….

  1. Brilliant. Both of them are refreshingly reflecting
    Paradise Lost – uncompleted and unadulterated Innocence before the Fall. What they say is what they see! I would not rule out their prospects yet!

  2. what does family worship team comprise of? is it every week? when do u have it? how do you decide what to do ?

  3. Hello spots, and that’s a lotta questions in one comment!

    In brief, whatever works, whenever we can, whoever leads decides 🙂
