We went to Grace Cathedral yesterday for the baptism of our favorite two year old. There were about 40 kids – mostly babies – being christened and the result was a lot of repetition. “Jesus is my savior” is one of the things that was often repeated.
The night before this blessed event the 2 year old picked up on a variation of the theme that his father and godfather were bandying about.
Which was cute until they were standing in front of hundreds of people and the kid was being held by a priest with a microphone transmitting the smallest whisper for all to hear.
What were they afraid the 2 year old would say out loud?
“Jesus is my home boy.”
