Through the Grapevine

We have a great, open-minded, open-hearted little congregation. You might be surprised, considering what a conversative Christian church we are. We hold "wives, submit to your husbands," as dearly as we hold "husbands, love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her."

There is a young couple who just had their first child and he is the sensation and fascination of every little kid in our church. Including Boo. Boo has always adored Mr. and Mrs. Rhoads, and while we're in Sunday School, keeps them company as Mr. Rhoads prepares the communion platters and Mrs. Rhoads feeds Austin. This couple is sweet, and sweet on each other. She is as satisfied in her standing with God as anyone I know in the world. She apparently suggested something to her dear husband, to which 6-1/2 year old Boo said,

"Isn't it awful when a wife bosses her husband around?"

Is there a rock his parents can crawl under?!?
